MONTE RIO, CALIF.– The sign says “Welcome to Monte Rio The Vacation Wonderland”. And for most of us who rent a cabin or stay at a B&B in this neck of the Northern California redwood forests of Sonoma County, it truly is a paradise. However, there’s a hidden side to this vacation playground for adults that’s lesser known.
Stories persist about the oddities and supposed rituals in which our nation’s leaders participate, taking part in ceremonies that would amaze.
In California, a very real Bohemian Grove in a town called Monte Rio is far enough away to miss the scrutiny that bigger cities and places might be subject to.
Bohemian Grove circa 60s. Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon are dressed conservatively. No wild stuff here.
