Whilst driving on Highway 5in California between Los Angeles and San Francisco, one will come upon a creek, canyon, and offramp given the name Panoche. A bit north of this area is Little Panoche Creek, with its own corresponding gas station and canyon. This area is about 40 miles from any other settlements and is a welcome sight for anyone traveling the 5 and running low on gas. Panoche, as far as anyone can tell, is a derivative of 'Panocha' in spanish, which means 'pussy' or 'vagina'. So there is a 'Little Pussy Creek' and a 'Big Pussy Creek' in central California. It is not uncommon to see Spanish-speaking people taking photographs next to the sign.
