Honora and I went for a drive this afternoon and found ourselves in Penryn at the Griffith Quarry established by Welsh Immigrant Griffith Griffith in 1864. The surrounding 23-acre park contains ruins of the first polishing mill built in California and some of the quarry holes from which the unique Penryn granite was taken. This site is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the California Landmark Program and provided some of the granite for the California State Capitol.
I took this photo of Honora ascending a granite stairway in the quarry.
