The middle of nowhere
Today the Out There section has a story about the most remote spots in the county and the state. The one in the state is pretty much exactly where I would have thought: smack dab in the middle of the largerst wilderness area. The one in the county, though, is a bit of a surprise. It's in the sandy, rolling sage prairie of Chico Basin Ranch down in the southeast corner of the county. I don't feel like that's the most remote point, especially since while there are no roads, you can pretty much drive everywhere. But every other place I think of, even up in the mountains, is criss-crossed by roads, so maybe it does make sense.
I'll take votes on the most "remote feeling" place in the county below.
