Welcome to the MyOutdoorBuddy Photo Gallery
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
Abert Rim, Lake County, OregonRising 2500 feet above the valley floor and spanning 50 miles, the Abert Rim is North America's longest fault scarp. It is home to mule deer and relocated big horn sheep, falcon, hawks, and rattlesnakes. Photo by Larry Arbanas
Highway 96, Siskiyou CountyThe dream of a new State formed in Northern California and Southern Oregon is still alive. The thought of being free of big city politics and creating a state based on rural values is wildly popular.Photo by Anders Tomlinson
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
Clear Lake, Lake County Clear Lake is one of the most consistently productive largemouth bass fisheries in northern California. Bass to 10 pounds and more are common. Many anglers practice CPR: Catch, Photograph and Release.Photo by Ross England
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
Lakeview, Lake CountyThe same weather pattern that brought the nutrient rich upwelling to the North Pacific Ocean also provided moisture for all kinds of plants that deer love. Look for populations to rebound across the west.Photo by Larry Arbanas
Eagle Lake, Lassen County Catch and release enhances the experience, saves many fish for another day and allows the angler to enjoy the sport but after a reasonable or legal catch limit has been reached the day is done.Photo by Mark Traugott
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
Tule Lake NWR, Modoc CountyWith sharp vision and high stature sandhill cranes are safe in the open grasslands. Wily coyotes pay them no mind but if a wing droops or a leg is bent the predators will recognize it instantly and attack.USFWS Photo by Dave Menke
