Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant

Years ago the Sacramento area was powered by nuclear. From off in the distance you could always see the twin cones. As a kid I was sure if you got too close your face would melt off like the bad guy in Indiana Jones. Well, the days of nuclear are gone and solar has moved in. What seems like hundreds and hundreds of acres of solar panels now surround the power plant. (They own the property so why not!?) And also the power company hosts a beautiful little campground where campers can enjoy a lovely tree surrounded man-made lake. (I have to assume this lake was built for the purposes of melt down but what do I know.) Anyway, I digress. I’ve always found the smoke stacks interesting looking and thought I would finally stop in for a quick visit and a few photos. Hopefully I am none the more radioactive for it. Cheers!
