Aka "Killer Capo" because of the piling stumps that used to shred surfers.

By the way, these are all either personal pics or public domain, so no copyright worries.

Crown Valley looking east at Saddleback in the far background. Those two water towers confirmed it on Historic Aerials. Oso Creek would be about in the middle of the photo.

Palisades School (which I attended) didn't exist when that pic was taken. Here's a very crude edit with the school footprint outlined in red:

The oldest continuously occupied residence in California is on Los Rios Street in San Juan Capistrano, in the Los Rios Historic District. Built in 1794, it has been occupied by the Rios family since that time: San Juan Capistrano Historical Society
He did not graduate from GGHS. Yes, he started high school there but later went to (and graduated from) Rancho.

That is backwards. He attended Rancho first, then transferred to GGHS in the fall of 1962 and graduated from there in 1963.

From his autobiography "Born Standing Up": "I had been attending Rancho Alamitos High School, but in the fall of 1962, redistricting moved me across town to Garden Grove High School . . . "

Then he lied. That isn't how it worked. That's backwards. I know people who went there when he did and teachers who taught there when he did. I also know people who were his friends when he went to Rancho.
