Where outdoor recreation has no end
South Jetty, Humboldt CountySouth Jetty, Humboldt Bay, Casey Allen, MyOutdoorBuddy.comThe name dolos comes from a South African dialect where dolos were invented to absorb the energy of waves without damage. They also create lots of hidey holes for bottom fish such as lingcod.Photo by Casey Allen
Trinidad Harbor, Humboldt CountyThe otter is very sensitive to pollution and will emigrate to where there is a clean body of water and a variety of food. In Asia, the otter is domesticated and trained to hunt and catch fish and fowl.Photo by Marna Powell
Prairie Creek, Humboldt CountyElk are expanding their range and numbers providing more visitors an opportunity to watch and photograph them. Their success also provides hunters a better chance to draw a tag.Photo by Casey Allen
Humboldt Bay, Humboldt CountyWhen the outgoing tide meets the ocean swell the bar gets rough with short steep swells that sometimes break. Experienced captains know to stay next to the south jetty where the channel is deeper.Photo by Casey Allen
Pacific Ocean, Humboldt CountyThe scratches that cover the Risso`s dolphin`s body are attributed to social intervention. They remain a beautiful animal with unique, tattoo like scars, worn proudly and marking each as an individual.Photo by Casey Allen
Manila Dunes, Humboldt CountyThe most popular equestrian access to Humboldt County beaches is at Clam Beach, Manila Dunes and Table Bluff Beach. Horses must stay on the trails or the wave slope to protect the fragile dune habitat.Photo by Casey Allen
Woodley Island Marina, Humboldt County
Marina life starts early and the romance of living aboard is replaced by the work required to keep everything ship shape. The peaceful calm of a boat at rest in the soft morning light is worth the effort.Photo by Casey Allen
Eureka Public Marina, Humboldt CountyA half day kayak trip on Humboldt Bay will take the paddler from the Eureka downtown wharf and marinas to the wild saltwater estuary where harbor seals, pelicans, and terns feed on anchovy and herring.Photo by Casey Allen
Willow Creek, Humboldt County
Above Willow Creek the Trinity River winds due north through the Hoopa Reservation where it meets the Klamath River at Weitchpec. Early morning is a good time to fly fish for wary steelhead.Photo by Frank Galusha
Klamath River, Del Norte CountyThe Klamath River does not have a large estuary and huge amounts of water flow directly into the sea. Water, wind, and ocean currents are the tools of nature's whim and the mouth changes location.Photo by Tracy McCormack
