  1. David,

    Just caught some of your photos on Will Ray’s STEINBECK NOW site. B.F.B.—Or as we used to call in Laos, “109!”

    Outstanding images of the hills near King City, the Elkhorn Slough, and Steinbeck House! If I am ever able to use them on web-work, may I, with your attribution? You keep getting bigger and bigger to me.
