Obviously, I don’t know the technical term for this huge… thing. It is just tucked amongst the trees looking very cool on the road below Weichpec. There is another in the main town of Hoopa, but is doesn’t look this cool…
- I took this one for scale
So, my daughter was giving me crap for not knowing the technical term for this thing so I googled “slash burner photo” and found… these. Guess it is a slash burner after all.
This was is especially interesting because it is built right over a creek. Convenient before folks started concerning themselves with water quality and such…

- Dolly “A-Cha-Wish” Sepatan (1845-1915)
This is one of my husband’s ancestors.
He is Yurok.
Sometimes the “native ways” seem very long ago.
Other times, not so much.

- Brizard Store and Post Office, Weichpec
Definitely worth clicking on repeatedly to enlarge…
This store used to exist less than a 1/4 mile west of the Weichpec Bridge towards Martin’s Ferry. It is just an empty lot now…
On the opposite side of the road is an old cemetery where some of my husband’s ancestors are buried.
It is rather sad and beautiful place [see previous post].
