for The Diary of Opal Whiteley
|The blue hills are mountains a few miles east of Opal's home.
These mountains were called the blue hills because they were colored blue by camus flowers in the spring. The camus plant was a main food for the Kalapula Indians. It is sort of like a potato.

|The road runs in front of Opal's grandparent's house. It's real name is Mosby Creek Road.
Opal calls this place where the road goes three ways . It is the intersection of Mosby Creek Road and Layng Road.
Opal's vivid imagination sees Mosby Creek road as going two different directions. One way the road goes west towards Cottage Grove. The other way the road goes is east to her school and the blue hills. Layng Road goes north and onto the upper logging camps and the Bohemia gold mines.
