A Visit to Cisco Grove

Aliens in the ForestOn July 15, 2012, author Ruben Uriarte once more visited Cisco Grove, California, site of the UFO encounter chronicled in the book Aliens in the Forest, written by him and Noe Torres. The area is about 80 miles northeast of Sacramento, just off of Interstate 80 (exit 165).  After exiting I-80, one follows Hampshire Rocks Road for two miles to the east until arriving at the Rainbow Lodge Bed & Breakfast (http://www.therainbowlodge.com/). The lodge sits at the edge of the forest where the famous Aliens in the Forest encounter took place, just two miles due south of the lodge. Below is a Google Map showing the location of the Rainbow Lodge, followed by photos of the area taken by Ruben on July 15.
