I was driving east on Hwy 20 to Nevada City from Penn Valley to work at 3:00 am one morning. I was passing Rex Reservoir, and there was a gently sloping bank on the right shoulder of the highway. There were Manzanita shrubs scattered across the low embankment. Then I noticed an old woman standing amongst the bushes. She had a broad brimmed hat trench coat and a large handbag. All were light gray. As I drove by, she just stood there as if she could not
see me driving by. The thought occurred to me I should stop and offer her a ride, but for some reason I did not. The next day it occurred to me she may
have been a ghost still awaiting some ride from long ago.|

This one still scares me. I was driving to a spot to drink a beer with a friend of mine when I was about 17-years old, at a new subdivision called Canyon Creek, in Penn Valley, off Indian springs road.
The builders had first built the roads, no houses were started, yet, and it was a perfect place to go and get drunk or whatever. On this particular day I drove to a random court, thinking I had been there already, and everything was cool.
