    I liked this story. Cause In Willow Creek that runs next to a road up the canyon, you pass a campground now with a spring in front of it that gushes clear water and it was the place where the cabin stood. Just like a place a bridge is built over a stream, people don’t just give up on a good location to build a cabin next to a spring. Cabin years ago becomes campground in national forest in todays world. – that’s why at end of video it says subtly “I can go right to this sacred grounds where the cabin stood, and so can you.”

    Hmmm… So there are _two_ Willow Creeks in California? Ive not been to Cali since I was around 5, but I know Willow Creek as The Bigfoot Capital of the World. I also know it’s in Humboldt County. When I heard Monterey County, it threw me off. I did a little research, and yes, it appears that California has two Willow Creeks. Cool story, by the way.
