There are two cities out there in America called Eureka and Arcata and I spent about 3 years of my life there growing from an high school graduate to a college student. This was where I spent my time at a community college. It was also where I formed a relationship with someone that lasted 4.5 years.
It was also a place where I saw a lot of beauty in the landscape.
Humboldt County is in the northern (true northern) part of California. It is famous for its Redwood trees but also its pot growing. Let me just say that during my whole time there I never once smoked the ganja. That was taken care of in high school. However the culture and the people there accept this kind of pot life as normal.
Mom linked me to a new movie that is out called Humboldt County. It looks like an independent film about life's struggles and growing. But it is shot in Humboldt where there are beautiful seascapes and forest views.
Seeing the preview made my heart ache and realize how much I took the California landscape for granted.
Anyways I hope to download this next month and catch it for myself.
