I won’t get into the environmental consequences of logging  in this area-just hoping folks will appreciate the photo for the stories it shares

    You might find this recent picture of the same buildings interesting… the three still standing are at upper center over the laying down ox in the 1880 photo. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rohnerville_Oldtown_Fortuna_CA.jpg

    Incidentally there’s photos of the photographer Robert F. Blum at the Humboldt Room collections, he took this image shortly before he died.

    Great blog, so happy to see you active again!

      Thanks Ellin,
      Nice to see you’re still visiting 🙂
      I’m going to try to be more consistent (but I’ve said that before).
      Fingers crossed…

    Another great picture!

    How pleased I am to see this. Glad you’re back in the saddle again, cowgirl. You know I had to swing by & say that 🙂
