Humboldt County is very large and quite diverse.  Geographically it is about the size of Connecticut.  There are the notorious marijuana grows in the mountains and forests but there is also a lot of other agriculture in and around this county. The area is also very old and some towns have maintained the architectural flavor of their history. Ferndale is a perfect example.

Crossing Fernbridge (above) you begin to immediately feel that something is different. The dairy farms that dot the landscape are neat and well maintained. Signs welcome you to Ferndale and upon arrival you are transported back in time to the Victorian era that marked a heyday of this town.

The Catholic Church is a prime example of the Victorian architecture that has been maintained throughout the town.  All the storefronts in the town are from the late 1800s and early 1900s.  It is very peaceful and gives you a real sense of how American used to be. ❧

    Are you sure you are not in Brigadoon? The bridge photo is beautiful; not just the bridge but the sky and the wild flowers in the foreground. The photographer is a very talented artist.
