Photograph byB.Anthony Stewart RIO NIDO IS A LITTLE LIDO WHERE TRAPPERS AND GUIDES HELD SWAY ONLY AFEW DECADES AGO Between the belt of coastal fog and the dry summer heat of the Sacramento Valley lies the cool, clear Russian River resort region. Thousands of SanFrancisco families have cottages here. A major industry is running boys' and girls' camps where parents pay goodly sums so their children may live outdoors, sleep intents, and cook their meals over open fires. Near here is Bohemian Grove, scene of the famous San Francisco club's alfresco "high jinks."
