Just a Thought Series ~ Feb 14, 1971

An adventure to Humboldt County
Grey brown smoothness
To electric green

Redwoods, wild mustard and me

Back roads
Dressed in bottom land farms

Redtail hawks and the sea

Reveling in the solitude
Of a blue highway drive
An adventure of freedom
And of being alive

The photos were taken between 1984-2009: Richardson's Grove State Park, the mustard is along the Hwy 101 corridor, the farm is on the Lost Coast near Shelter Cove, and photo of Mussel Point was taken from the Bodega Marine Lab after a great storm in Winter of 1984. The elevation of the bluff is about 85 feet so you can see the power the ocean generated that day.
