I had no idea that I was on the fore front of the Mediterranean healthy food diet when I decided to cure some olives from an abandoned orchard near my house.
The highlight for me was running through the old olive orchard. Even though many of the trees have died, a healthy stand of fruit bearing trees still exists.
As I trekked the narrowing trail as it ascended the bluff, I came across a slab of concrete sticking out of the side of the bluff.
Today, everything is dwarfed by Folsom Dam completed in 1958 and made the original 1895 Folsom dam, canal and powerhouse obsolete.
