I love this sign, along Interstate 5 near Coalinga. Pleasant Valley State Prison.
I guess if you have to be locked away, Pleasant Valley doesn't sound like the worst place to be.
Do Pleasant Valley ex-cons have a hard time getting respect when people find out where they did their hard time?
I love picturing the local parents trying to strike fear into their kids' hearts. "If you don't straighten up, Junior, you're going to end up in ... PLEASANT VALLEY!"
Or the local judges -- "You're not getting off this time. No, I'm giving you ten years in ... PLEASANT VALLEY!"
