I wish I knew! I'd been hiking in the Fall Creek area of Henry Cowell Redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains, and when I made it back out to the trailhead, there it was in the rough dirt parking area, with no one around. So we can add one more question -- who'd go off and leave this unwatched? And as far as I know, there weren't any Viking festivals in the area (Vikings not having made much of a mark in California history).For second I loved Ted's @terse Sea Dragon. We need a little back story on this one. Where in the world did you spot this, but more importantly where was it going?
