““Nobody likes this place except me,” said Governor Jerry...

""Nobody likes this place except me," said Governor Jerry Brown of California. This is the cabin where he stays with his wife when they visit Rancho Venada — 2,514 wind-swept acres that have been owned by the Brown family for almost 150 years. There is no electricity or cell service here. There is no other sign of civilization for miles. Aside from a compact outhouse and this redwood cabin, which is just big enough to hold a single air mattress, there is very little. For all its isolation and ostensible inhospitality, this is the place that the governor, who is 77, is gravitating to as he approaches the end of his 50-year career in politics. If you consider some of his past housing situations, this looks like an upgrade. (In 1975, when he first became governor, he slept on a mattress in a Sacramento apartment.) @nytimes staff photographer @jimwilson125 photographed Rancho Venada while on #nytassignment."
