Digital Detox

There’s nothing like the smell of a coastal redwood forest. The scent of sun-warmed bark mixed with notes of pine and slightly salted air is unmistakably Northern California. I’m taking in the aromas at a former shooting range that’s been turned into a haven for old typewriters at Camp Grounded, a digital-detox retreat in Anderson Valley outside of Navarro, Calif. As I do target practice with my fingers on a vintage keyboard, the pinging sound between line breaks reminds me of BBs hitting aluminum cans.
