Count this among the many strange sights travelers encounter along northern California's Redwood Highway: a billboard of a flying saucer firing beams into "Area 101."
Behind the sign are a couple of buildings painted with lavish psychedelic murals, mixing UFO, mystic and religious symbols. Area 101 is not a tourist attraction, but it appears to be the front end for a farm collective dispensing medicinal marijuana. It may also be an occasional local concert venue.
The nice people inside didn't mind us snapping pics of the colorful outside murals.
