In 2008 the Livingston Reservoir was drained to seven percent capacity to deal with a shellfish problem, exposing the ghosttown of Alma Calaforina. I could'nt resist going and seeing what I could find. The map shows me stading in around 50 ft of water, that would be correct except its dry the day I was there :).
This is the original highway 17 ( not sure what they called it in those days ) badly damaged by being underwater for so many years.

In this photo you can see 2 ruined foundations from buildings, one cement and one from natural rock. The road cones are to keep eqiupment from running into them.
I agree with you, grey3000, and this is the best photo I've ever seen. (yellow star)
most of the trees are second growth, so they are not as large as the ones at big basin unless they where crooked or something as the loggers only took the straight trees. Still in all they are giants.
