And Now for Something Completely Different

Monday, May 23rd

Thanks to the cyclist we met atop Gibraltar Road, we stopped to view the rock art attributed to the Chumash Native Americans at Painted Cave State Historic Park on Painted Horse Road.

What a special and surprising treat.  A beautiful area with a great descent, too.

I mentioned that I bought a Pendleton wool blanket from the Pacific Northwest Trading company in Solvang. The shop owner, a woman who moved to Solvang from L.A. 25 years ago, also showed me Native American blankets with their story lines woven in the wool; fascinating.  She also gave me an earful about the controversy surrounding the Chumash Casino Resort in Solvang.  It is an eyesore upon the bucolic landscape.
