Today's Location: [Salinas, CA]

The Salinas, California graticule is at latitude 36, longitude -121. It includes the cities of Salinas, Monterey, Carmel, Watsonville and Hollister. It also encompasses the Big Sur region along Highway 1, and most of Los Padres National Forest.

At the risk of oversimplifying things, most of the landscape in this graticule is farmland: large commercial farms. US Highway 101 (which is mostly faithful to the El Camino Real) runs through the graticule, while California Highway 1 follows the coast.

  • Quertior - I actually live in Santa Cruz, but my house is just outside of the Santa Cruz graticule. So here I am. This graticule has more land anyway.
  • Montoki - Located in Monterey, up for meetups.
