From today's San Francisco Chronicle:

At an old mining camp in the mountains above Cazadero in Sonoma County is a Mars-like panorama of steep crumbling red slopes, bizarre mineralized formations and green serpentine rock.

The 11-square-mile area, called the Cedars, is a mysterious land of one-of-a-kind geological phenomena next to the Austin Creek State Recreation Area and Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve that almost nobody in the Bay Area knows anything about...

Huh. I never knew there were cedars out that way. I don't get much past Armstrong Woods, but I have driven up old Cazadero Road and out to the coast. I wonder if it's on BLM land, if it's accessible to the general public.
