Like No Place Else Humboldt County is beautiful, sure. Especially right now, when gorgeous fall and winter light keep your outdoor fun rolling even as the holiday music cues up. But we’ve got plenty of personality, too. The mild climate, warm neighbors and creative culture around here are a few reasons author/gardener/cocktail enthusiast Amy Stewart calls Eureka home. With her detective novel Girl Waits with Gun still warm from the presses, we’ll take you along for a garden chat with Stewart about her life and writing. The salmon are biting now, so hop on a jet boat with us for a guided fishing trip on the breathtaking Klamath River. We’ve got mountain biking trips, surfing, stand-up paddling and, hey, disc golf for the athletic set in our Perfect Trips — not to mention art studio visits and seafood on the bay. Vinyl collectors and casual browsers can always lose a couple hours in the nostalgia and discovery of thumbing through racks of records at three of our favorite shops, each of which has its own particular character. Check out Vinyl Adventures for the rundown and dive into those stacks of wax. In this issue, you’ll also find out where you can fuel your adventures around the county with a hearty breakfast (homey pancakes and fancy crepes alike) and reward your efforts in the evening with sommelier-approved wine-and-dine spots. Still thirsty? Let us point you to some unique locally made booze (seriously, distilled off-the-grid from rainwater). In case you forgot to pack one (and is one really enough?), check out the new and vintage knits for “Sweater Weather.” Don’t worry — they flatten down in a suitcase, so there’s still room for souvenirs. And you’ll want to remember this trip, because while there may be no place like home, there’s no place like Humboldt, either. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

GARDENS & GUMSHOES LOCAL AUTHOR AMY STEWART BY AMY BARNES

A

my Stewart stands at her purple front door with the neighbor’s cat in her arms. The flowers alongside the entry seem unable to contain themselves and rocket toward a cloudless sky. Stewart, author of seven books, (four are New York Times bestsellers), makes her home in a yellow Victorian on a quiet street in downtown Eureka. Stewart grew up in Texas, and after grad school headed to California where she and husband Scott Brown lived in a beach

cottage across the street from the Santa Cruz boardwalk. It was there that she planted her first garden. Then she wrote a book about it. From the Ground Up, begins with her first half hour in her Oxalis-infested yard and chronicles in tender, humorous detail the struggles and triumphs of becoming a gardener. Stewart and Brown moved into their Eureka home in 2001, almost on the publication date of that first book. In the years since, she’s found a strong community in Humboldt

19


County. “It’s very easy to make friends here, and that’s not true everywhere.” She says in contrast to city life, there’s a “frictionless existence” to living in Humboldt, “a wonderful simplicity to it.” The mild weather is another plus. Stewart appreciates being “someplace where I can be outside in December and January just much as I am in July.” She also likes the walkability of her neck of the Eureka woods. “Neither one of us needs the car most days.” The cafés, shops and galleries of Old Town are close by, and Brown can walk to work at Eureka Books, the rare book store they co-own. Stewart has written since she was a girl, and was “a freakishly advanced reader.” She recalls being “very shy, in the corner with a book — and a cat.” In the years since, she’s published six works of non-fiction and a slew of magazine and newspaper articles. Writing her first novel, Girl Waits With Gun was, was “hugely fun,” says Stewart. “I’ve always wanted to write fiction,” she admits with an honest laugh. “Between many of those nonfiction books was a failed novel.” Girl Waits With Gun is based on the lives of the Kopp sisters, whose story Stewart discovered while researching a gin smuggler named Henry Kaufman for her sixth book, The Drunken Botanist. Deep in the New York Times archives, she found a 1915 clipping about a man whose car collided with a horse and buggy driven by three sisters. Stewart says, “I abandoned Drunken Botanist for the day and thought, ‘I think we have a story here.’” Two years of intensive research ensued. Stewart gleaned all the information she could from digitized newspapers, then hired a genealogist who was able to get courthouse records. She traveled to New Jersey and hung out in library basements

scouring microfilm. “Thanks to Ancestry.com,” she says, “I found family members and was able to talk to people who have memories of the Kopp sisters.” All of that fact-finding paid off. Released in fall 2015, Girl Waits With Gun is generating rave reviews in national and international media. Stewart is on a roll with the Kopp sisters. Book two is nearly finished and set for release sometime in late 2016. The story may well expand into a series of seven books or more. “There’s definitely room to grow,” Stewart says. Once the research is done and Stewart decides it’s time to actually write a book, she sets a timeline and just hauls off and writes. Her approach to writing is no nonsense — almost mathematical. She shoots for 1,000 words a day for 100 days, totaling 100,000 words. That takes a little over three months. “It’s not a spiritual practice” she insists. “There’s a start date and I’m going to keep going till the finish date and if Thanksgiving or Christmas falls in there I’m going to be extremely annoyed.” When she’s home and “in her groove,” Stewart often paints in the early mornings. In contrast to her writing (which she considers her job), painting is her escape, a time to clear her head without pressure. “I can literally throw them away or wipe them off. But if they work it’s like, ‘Oh look, great! That’s done!’” One of Stewart’s paintings hangs in her living room — a simple, vibrant urban streetscape. With high ceilings and walls in celery and butter and pumpkin hues, her house is airy and soothing. The Echium in the side garden is massive, and the occasional hen stalks past the window. It seems the perfect space for this writer, gardener, gardening writer, painter and novelist who, if she had to do it again, might just be a singer.

n the warmer uplands of Humboldt, experience a place with outrageous weather, a tantalizing river that runs all year, and a laid back attitude for life. Willow Creek is a place of leisure and has been for over 100 years. A hub for jaunts to the Coastal Redwoods or the Trinity Alps, the town’s central location makes for a great base camp. Coho Cottages makes a statement with a mix

of contemporary and authentic period cabins. Great detail has gone into each individualized structure. With two campuses to choose from, Coho Cottages is sophisticated and understated. The China Creek annex reflects a refined National Park atmosphere with flower and vegetable gardens, hiking trails, quiet sitting porches, and great outdoor spaces.

No point catching it if you can’t brag about it. Borges snaps a fisherman’s catch.

IF YOU’RE UP FOR AN ADVENTURE AND WANT TO EXPERIENCE THE PRISTINE BEAUTY OF THE NORTH COAST, TRY A RIVER FISHING TRIP

IT’S SURE TO HOOK YOU. 23


outdoor

Y

es, you may grumble at getting up at 4 a.m. or because you might get cold and wet, but once you get out on the placid water, it’s all replaced with a fishing high. Unless you’re going to wing it yourself (not recommended for newbies), you’ll need a guide who knows the rivers, the landscape and good fishing spots for salmon and steelhead trout. In these parts, Alan Borges of Alan’s Guide Service out of Klamath, is your man. For 25 years, he’s taken novice and experienced fisherfolk on guided trips. His services are used by locals and tourists. “I still get an adrenaline rush every time I take people out,” he said. Borges is a local guy who turned his passion into a career. He grew up in Arcata and attended school at St. Bernard’s Academy in Eureka. While working at Britt Lumber Mill, he started his guide service part-time and jumped to full-time 13 years ago. During the height of fishing season in early fall, he works seven days a week. In his off season in early spring, he spends more time with his family and coaches high school softball. He’s meticulous, patient and calm — all good qualities for a guide. Before the trip he gives you the lowdown on pertinent info and quells anxieties, especially for novice anglers. “We’re out here to have fun and there’s no need to stress,” he said. “Get excited, but don’t worry. I teach you what you need to know. And, if you already know how to fish, I make the day more enjoyable by taking care of the details and providing equipment.” Most river fishing excursions are day-long outings starting well before dawn, while the sky is still black and the air chilly (or cold later in the season). Borges launched his 24-foot jet boat on the river at 5:30 a.m. to give our small group a head start. The goal is to get in as much fishing before the sun gets bright and the fish drop down to cooler waters, making fishing even trickier. The Lower Klamath River was tranquil. Thankfully, unlike ocean fishing, large swells and motion sickness are a rarity on the rivers. Borges parked down river along the bank, where he readied the fishing rods and baited hooks with red-dyed salmon roe under a headlamp. Meanwhile, others on board took a “nature break” in nearby bushes, not veering too deep in the darkness. At the first hint of daybreak, we were back on the water and ready to fish. For the next several hours, as the fog rolled around us and we soaked up the breathtaking view, we watched our rods intently while he baited hooks, cleaned fishing lines of tangled moss and maneuvered the boat for optimal drifting. A thick landscape of trees filled with wildlife lined the river. It’s common for trip goers to see osprey, bald eagles, blue herons, mergansers (river ducks), raccoons, coyotes, deer, black bears and seals. Reeling in my first catch of the day was a sight. Full of excitement, I tried to follow Borges’ calm instructions — “reel down, rod up.” It wasn’t graceful but I pulled it in. My first-ever catch was a sucker, which I sadly learned is not good eating. Back into the water it went. Keepers are Chinook salmon, which are native to the Northern Pacific Ocean and the North American western river systems. The granddaddy of them all, the king salmon (adult), is prized for its large size, firm texture and rich taste. The jack salmon, though smaller (under 22 inches), are tender and milder tasting. Anglers also get to keep steelhead

24

humboldt insider fall 2015

trout — hatchery only, the wild ones are released. Catch limits per person are three salmon (maximum two adults) and two steelhead. Not all anglers, experienced ones included, always hook and reel ’em in. “It’s part of the game,” said Borges. “That’s why they call it fishing.” The excitement did pick up, and at one point I was in a “double hook up.” Sounds fishy, right? It’s when anglers on the same boat are simultaneously reeling in fish. Adrenaline rushes when two, three and even more have fish on their lines, each angler trying their darndest not to tangle with each other or have their lines break. I didn’t get to keep that fish, either. Later I did hook a jack, though. At day’s end, around 2 p.m., Borges gutted and bagged all our fish. Sorry, no filleting allowed. It’s whole fish only. A river fishing trip is not just about snagging fish. (But a catch does make it sweeter.) It’s about the entire experience — the occasional excitement of near catches and snares, a few actual hooked fish and a stunning perspective of nature from the middle of a vast river. It certainly makes for a memorable experience … and of course some tall fish tales.

WHAT’S BITING/WHICH BOAT: Anglers can cast for salmon and steelhead trout through October on the Lower Klamath River in Borges’ jet boat. It’s a primo ride and roomy for up to five or six. Through November, salmon can also be had on smaller rivers like the Smith near Crescent City and Chetco near Brookings, where catches can be bigger (25 to 50 pounds). For these rivers and winter fishing on the Van Duzen, Eel and Mad Rivers for steelhead trout, you’ll ride in his 17-foot drift boat. WHAT TO BRING: • A valid California fishing license. Single day licenses are available. • Steelhead/salmon punch card • Sunscreen and lip protection • Toilet paper/tissues • Lunch, snacks and beverages • Camera • Cooler to take your catch home WHAT TO WEAR: • Layer up. Early fall mornings are chilly but may give way to warm afternoons — a base layer of a T-shirt and shorts would be welcome; in late fall/winter when it will be cold and wet, you’ll need layers of waterproof, breathable clothing and footwear. • A hat • Gloves and hand warmer packets for late fall • Sunglasses COST PER PERSON: Drift Boat – $225 each for 2 or more people $350 single person Jet Boat – $225 each for 3 or more

T

he 12-mile Paradise Royale Loop is a thing of legend in the mountain biking community — a quick Google search turns up hours of YouTube videos documenting an area known as much for its challenging climb — known to regulars as “Fool’s Paradise” as for the relentless beauty accompanying it. To reach Paradise Royale, head toward Shelter Cove from Redway. After 20 miles, you’ll pass the Bureau of Land Management office on the left. Further up the

28

hill, turn right onto King Peak Road, then go two more miles to the trailhead and parking. Be prepared for thick forest, steep slopes, Bear Creek bridge crossings and, at times, a very narrow trail. Make sure to ride in a clockwise direction so you can revel in the east side’s long descent. Pack water and some Dick Taylor chocolate — the experience is reward enough, but you’ll deserve that something extra! Much more accessible, the Arcata Community Forest offers trails from easy

to challenging, variously friendly to hikers, bikers and horseback riders. The further back you go, the larger the old-growth experience, but even the most accessible trails immediately sweep you from the mundane world into a dreamscape of ferns, creeks and towering redwoods. Stop by Arcata City Hall for a map or print one from the city’s website, and do keep track of where you’re going. You can enter from Fickle Hill Road or take either 11th or 14th streets into the park. The 11th Street entrance will have you parked by a playground — an added bonus for those with young children. In addition to the various wondrous hikes, an expansive field offers a fine place to fling a Frisbee, toss a ball or, as the locals are inclined to do, play hacky sack or hula hoop.

Redeem this coupon for 15% off total purchase. The Cooper Gulch Disc Golf Course (1720 10th St., Eureka) supplies users with a technical nine-hole course at one of Eureka’s most versatile parks. In addition to the disc golf course, the area boasts softball fields, a children’s playground and a skate park. The course is short. It’s also mostly flat and runs among thick woods. For a course of similar skill level, but a wholly different view, head out to the peninsula to play on the Manila Disc Golf Course (end of Lupin Avenue, east of US Highway 255, Manila), which is situated right on Humboldt Bay. Exceptionally fun, but you’ll want to check the tides and aim to arrive around high tide for the prettiest experience.

rcata isn’t a particularly busy city, but the area around Cafe Phoenix (1360 G St., Arcata), a sort of transitory point between downtown and Northtown, tends to bustle. Which makes the tranquility upon walking into the charming café an instant appeal. Fortunately more than just the atmosphere is soothing — one sip of a smoothie or specialty juice will have you brimming with a healthy vibe you likely haven’t experienced before. The quinoa salad tastes even more beautiful than it looks. And for those seeking a bit of

30

celebration, Café Phoenix includes a local beer, wine and cider list. No matter what shape you arrive in, you’ll depart lighter, sated and renewed. Whether you sit inside or out — choose out if weather permits — Jack’s Seafood (4 C St., Eureka) brings the bounty of the ocean to your table. You may struggle choosing between the halibut or cod and chips, but unlike most places, Jack’s serves up adorable cottage fry-like potato wedges in lieu of traditional fries, which, given the sizeable amount of fish delivered, works out just perfectly with a bowl of clam

chowder. The seared ahi salad features tuna rolled in Los Bagels’ “Slug Slime” — trust us, this is a good thing. All this perched on the jewel that is Humboldt Bay. Cover your ears when the Madaket blows her horn and enjoy. Trinidad Eatery (607 Parker, Trinidad) has everything. Not only is the beloved café situated half a block from one of the prettiest views in Humboldt County, but the proprietors strive to utilize only the best and freshest, mostly organic ingredients in their fare. Lunches and dinners are excellent; breakfast is renowned. Pota-

eamoor’s (418 Second St., Eureka) is a perfect place for the child who loves oddities – a fan of the Roald Dahl books, perhaps. Full of novelties, vintage and simply bizarre toys, as well as more familiar but nonetheless quirky offerings, Seamoor’s is a treasure unto itself. Don’t be surprised if you arrive home from vacation having to explain exactly what and why you brought a Bigfoot action figure home with you. (Sourpusses and serious grown-up types need not apply.) The newly reopened Discovery Museum (612 G St., Eureka) offers interactive, hands-on exhibits focusing on science, art, culture and technology. Highlights include the playmarket, hands-on water table, raceway and the Young Discoverer’s Room, designed especially for children three years and younger with books, toys, mirrors and very small person furnishings.

Weather is no object, as RampArt Skatepark (700 South G St., Arcata) offers 4,000 square feet of indoor wooden ramps for the beginning to advanced skater. In addition to the inherent coolness of being a sanctioned place for youth, art and music, RampArt offers a variety of instructional courses, workshops and thematic events. Born from a desire to ensure future generations of aspiring skateboarders and artists have a venue, RampArt adopted a nonprofit business model to enable expansion of its programs — every visit is more than just a chance for your child to shred, it’s a way to ensure continuation of one of Humboldt County’s most unique outlets.

Sign up for a class via Pacific Outfitters (1600 Fifth St., Eureka) or the Humboldt State University Aquatic Center (921 Waterfront Dr., Eureka). Ready to rent? The Aquatic Center is right on Humboldt Bay or head north to Kayak Zak’s to paddle out on Stone Lagoon. Totally hooked and ready to buy? Support local at One Love Stand Up and Surf (1930 Fourth St., Eureka). Or maybe you’re interested in a more traditional ocean experience. Perhaps you can quote every line from Point Break and dream of catching waves of your own. Salty’s Supply Co. (332 Main St., Trinidad) not only offers surfboard, wetsuit and booties rentals by the half- or full-day or even week, but if you book “The Shell Seeker,” a vacation home two miles south of Trinidad, you’ll find yourself right above two of Humboldt County’s main surf spots. In addition to viewing the action from the comfort of your kitchen, the guest house includes complimentary rentals at Salty’s. Vacation or staycation, it’s bound to be epic. Let’s be blunt: You would not instinctively think to stop here as you enter Eureka from the south. This is not the city’s best side. And yet the Elk River Hikshari’ Trail (Hikshari’ is the Wiyot name for our area) waits to surprise you. The multiple-use, paved trail runs 1.5 miles along the Elk River and through the Elk River Wildlife Sanctuary between Truesdale Avenue (just south of the Bayshore Mall) to the Pound Road Park & Ride lot, off the Herrick Avenue and US Highway 101 interchange. The trails are flat, the access easy, the view spectacular. Stop for the interpretive signs dotting the trail for info on Humboldt Bay’s marsh reconstruction, bird species, geology and railroad history, plus Wiyot village life, Elk River sandspit formation and marine life, dune plant ecology, and plant and animal identification.

re two of these homemade blackberry hotcakes going to be enough? Better make it a stack of three ($10.75). Or more — the staff at the Seascape Restaurant (1 Bay St., Trinidad) understands. Your table also has postcard-worthy views of the sea and you’re a berry’s throw from a hiking trail to walk it off. Yeah, throw another pancake on there.

The happy chef on the vintage neon sign over the Eel River Café (801 Redwood Drive, Garberville) should tip you off that this is the place for some old-fashioned, cutout biscuits smothered in creamy country gravy ($4). The Mexican specials, like green or red chilaquiles with chicken, are a surprise bonus ($10.95). Bohemian glamour does not have to wait

until cocktail hour. Renata’s Creperie (1030 G St., Arcata) serves downright pretty sweet and savory buckwheat crepes in its jewel-toned dining room. Scan the board for the specials, but keep the Hungry Farmer, with its rosemary mashed potatoes and Loleta Jack cheese ($8.95), and the Nutella and berry filled Righteous Babe ($7.95) in mind.

for his patrons and friends. Crush has been an amazing success and will continue to be the premiere wine lounge destination in Arcata with a new added emphasis of small plates and international tapas. But the operation has outgrown its small kitchen, and is in the process on expanding to a new restaurant at 835 J Street called Harvest. Harvest will showcase a larger variety of local and organic food, including ingredients from its own courtyard garden for an unparalleled full-service culinary and enological experience for locals and visitors to Arcata.


A SPECIAL ADVERTISING FEATURE

LEFT: Owner Jason Valentin & executive chef Natalia Boyce ABOVE: Mise en place RIGHT: Mediterranean chicken

MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

WINE MATCH:

8 chicken thighs bone in and skin on 1 cup dried figs, halved 1 cup dates, pitted and halved 1 cup kalamata olives 1 large yellow onion, diced 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup apple cider vinegar 1 cup white wine ½ cup honey 2 T. olive oil 2 T. lemon juice 1 ½ T. salt ½ tsp. black pepper ½ tsp. chile flakes 1 tsp. ground cinnamon ½ tsp. ground cardamom

Preheat oven to 350F. Rub chicken thighs with salt, pepper, chili flakes, cinnamon and cardamom. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron pan. In two batches, brown the chicken on all sides. (About 10 minutes.) Remove chicken and place in baking dish. Using the same pan, sauté onions and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add white wine, cider vinegar, lemon juice and honey and let reduce for 5 minutes. Add the dates, figs and kalamata olives to liquid. Pour the entire mixture over the chicken. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking for about 10 minutes or until tops of chicken thighs are golden brown. Serve 2 chicken thighs with a generous scoop of the liquid mixture over pearl couscous. Serves 4.

Hatcher Petite Verdot 2008 “The blueberry and violet notes complement the sweet and savory elements of the Mediterranean Chicken, and the light, but present French oak tannins round out the mouth feel and provide a strong finish highlighting the cinnamon and cardamom flavors of the dish.”

T

he centerpiece of Brick & Fire Bistro is a wood-fired brick oven. Take advantage of it and the view of the staff working like a practiced dance troupe in the galley kitchen. For starters, see what adding fire does for the grilled Romaine Caesar salad ($8). The charred hearts of romaine with a mini Parmesan panna cotta, anchovies, olives and a traditional red wine Caesar dressing with crostini is a little bit of heaven. Paired with a glass of Bergin–Sipila Vineyards Chardonnay 2013 ($11), it’s a lot of heaven. Wild mushroom cobbler ($9) with shitake, porcini, crimini and oyster mushrooms in a savory, reduced cream with a hint of sherry, topped with a cheesy biscuit and baked in the wood-fired oven is a stand-out starter. Pair it with the baked cherry and sandalwood hints in the Macrostie Pinot Noir 2012 ($12). The obvious fare is pizza — less obvious are specials like the one with wild white prawns, sweet corn, padron peppers, raddichio, house-made goat and cow’s milk ricotta and Parmesan ($15). Yes, please. Of the 25 wines by the glass, chef/owner Jim Hughes recommends a glass of the Italian Garganega Buglioni Blanca della Venezie “Il Disparato” 2012 ($6.50), an expressive, aromatic white, to match it. Dashe Zinfandel 2012 ($11), which boasts the best of Dry Creek herbs and fruit with a bit of wintry spice, is the thing for the Brick Hen ($22). The split, brined, Cornish game hen is topped with a “brick” — more like a large, dark stone — and deeply pan browned before finishing in the brick oven.

M

ake your way through the busy slots and tables of Cher-Ae Heights Casino to the aptly named Sunset Restaurant. Along with vaulted ceilings and a free-standing fireplace, it’s got arguably one of the county’s most stunning views of the sun dipping into the Pacific. Start with Asian Steak Skewers, ginger and soy-marinated beef atop a cucumber salad garnished with tobiko and sriracha aioli ($10). Add a glass of California Ancient Peaks Merlot 2011 ($9), a velvety, berry-flavored Merlot with a hint of tobacco and spice, and this appetizer could be dinner. On the other hand, split the California cioppino — loaded with salmon, clams, mussels, prawns and Petrale sole in a fennel and tomato broth — with the accompanying garlic crostini ($20) and it works as an appetizer for the table. The perfectly steamed whole trout, fragrant with bay and thyme, arrives with grilled asparagus and fried risotto ($20). Sunset’s Kevin Ralston, responsible for the simple, tasty list of more than 50 wines (16 are offered by the glass) suggests a glass of the dry, full bodied Italian Torre di Luna Pinot Grigio 2012 with its hint of pear ($8) to compliment the seafood.

bruzzi will satisfy your craving for traditional Italian food with hand-made, fresh organic pastas and sauces, but Chef Josh Wily also turns out inventive modern dishes. And it stocks local, regional and international selections featuring several Italian whites and reds to suit the menu. Look out for locally sourced specials like sea urchin pomodoro with linguini, plum tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and spinach (market price). Pair it with a glass of Cacciata Toscana Chianti Classica Riserva 2008 ($8). More delicate urchin turns up in the seared albacore with poached egg yolk, uni, Calabrian chili and basil pesto (market price) — it’s well matched with a glass of Calabretta Etna Vino Rosato 2013 ($7), with hints of truffle and roses. If you like crispy skin, try the Maple Leaf Farms duck breast on a pillow of Parmesan and herb polenta, topped with braised local greens and drizzled with a blackberry-port reduction ($29). Manager Lauren Vucci, recommends a vibrant, well-balanced Italian wine to go with it: Bussola Valpolicella Pipassa Superiore 2010 ($52 bottle). If you’re having the halibut and clams with polenta, corn, pancetta, leeks, tomatoes and lemon ($32), she suggests the fresh, fruity Suavia Soave Classico 2012 ($28 bottle). And she’s right.

Spirits of Humboldt Local liquors to shake up your cocktails BY JOHN-MICHAEL WILKERSON PHOTO BY DREW HYLAND STYLING BY LYNN LEISHMAN

O

ur values of locally sourced, natural, sustainable ingredients are the foundation of a healthy lifestyle, but they’re also the spark for a couple of our indulgences: the Humboldt Distillery and Dutch and Dewey. In 2012, Abe Stevens put Fortuna’s Humboldt Distillery on the map when he launched his flagship vodka. Originally focusing on small scale production allowed Stevens to perfect his craft and grow his product line to include rum and brandy as well. The vodka is a certified organic sugar cane based neutral spirit that is slightly dry with a light, clean finish that is perfect for mixing. Try this in your next Cosmo or Bloody Mary and you’ll be impressed with the results. Next we have the Humboldt Distillery Spiced Rum. Also organic, this spirit is a treat unto itself. Unlike other spiced rums, which can have a cloyingly sugary finish, this one is smooth and flavorful without forgetting that it is first and foremost rum. Serve it neat or over ice to please your palate, but this rum really shines in cocktails. The company also produces small batches of eaux de vie style apple and pear brandy that are available in their gift shop. Fans will be pleased to hear that the first batches of its organic malt whisky should be available around the end of the year. Not to be outdone, Blue Lake’s Dutch and Dewey Distillery, founded in 2013 by Jeff and Marisa St. John, is a wonderful example of nouveau pioneering. The distillery grew organically (if you’ll excuse the Humboldtism) from the family’s vineyard, Rocky’s Ridge, which already had the permits and equipment needed to distill wines into brandy, making it easy to expand into other spirits as well. Produced using captured rainwater and an off-the-grid solar and hydro-powered distillery, Dutch and Dewey’s flagship product is its Farm Horse Vodka. With a clean aroma and smooth finish, this flavorful spirit is perfect for sipping. If you’re a lover of traditional vodkas, you must try this one. Partnering with the iconic Eureka café Old Town Coffee and Chocolates, Dutch and Dewey recently released Old Town Eureka Coffee Liqueur. Based on Farm Horse Vodka and the coffee shop’s organic espresso, this newcomer is a slightly sweet drink that stands on its own or mixed in a cocktail. Try it over ice with a splash of cream and drink it without mixing.

Store owners by day and club DJs by night, Matt Jackson and Adam Pokorski pride themselves on carrying a handpicked stock of music they would want in their personal collections. Old blues, bluegrass, country, underground/ indie bands, metal and stoner rock, and soul 45s are the pair’s specialty ­­— no Top 40 here. The two travel regularly, picking up handfuls of regional records “you didn’t know you liked” and bringing them back to Arcata, in addition to tracking down hard-to-find imports. Now in their third location, Missing Link is partnered up and sharing a roof with Dead Reckoning Tavern and its 36 microbrews on tap, but the shop is still all-ages. There’s a shelf outside the record room to set your pint while you browse the stacks and get recommendations. Lately Pokorski’s been enjoying The Ragtime Wranglers, Almighty Defenders and Sturgill Simpson.

Right on the plaza, People’s Records is the oldest and biggest record store in Arcata, specializing in new and used CDs and vinyl records, books, DVDs, postcards and posters. Store owner Steve Lovett has been collecting records since he was a kid and jumped at the chance to buy the store from its original owner a while back. Lovett takes pride in keeping the stock fresh and loves when shoppers pick his brain for new (and new to them) music suggestions. New stock comes in every week and most special orders arrive within a week. Lovett’s favorite records the week we visited: Damaged Bug’s Hubba Bubba and Total Control’s Typical System.

Eureka’s record store, founded in 1971, recently moved into its new location right across the street from the Old Town Gazebo. Specializing in new, used, and traded-in vinyl records, CDs, comic books, DVDs, stickers and buttons, store owner Bandon Taylor worked in the store for nearly 20 years before taking it over in 2012. Given his history in the record store business, Taylor knows music from current to classic to classical. He a up the legacy of the broadly curated store, never focusing on just one type of music. The Works is regularly stocked with Top 40, punk, hip-hop, soul, classic rock and beyond, because, as Taylor says, “everything is relevant to somebody.” Taylor’s current favorite records include Harry Nilsson's Nilsson Schmilsson, Jackson 5's Skywriter and Fleetwood Mac's Bare Trees.

Just north of Trinidad, Patrick’s Point State Park calls, with stunning vistas, traditional Yurok structures and the appropriately named Agate Beach. Farther up, Orick is is the hub for plenty of trails and camping possibilities. Start at the Kuchel Visitor Center, staffed by the National Park Service, and pick your Redwood National Park adventure, whether it’s the epic Tall Trees Grove, the dreamy Ladybird Johnson Grove, the Skunk Cabbage Trail or the must-see wonder of Fern Canyon.

Trinidad’s iconic lighthouse is a symbol of the town where Humboldt County’s fishing past lives on. Every day, the boats that dot the small harbor’s moorings scour the sea among dramatic, rocky outcroppings. For a look back, tour the Trinidad Museum, then stop at the smaller Memorial Lighthouse and take in the view and the sea air. Trinidad Art Night fills the little town with music, food and local artwork every first Friday of the month, and the annual Fish Festival and Blackberry Festival bring in folks from all over.

McKinleyville The sign says horses have the right of way, which should give you an idea of McKinleyville’s vibe. Some of its biggest attractions are outdoors. Play with the kids in Hiller Park and hike or bike the paved Hammond Trail. Ditch your shoes and spend the day at Clam Beach (yup, there are clams out there for the digging) kayaking, paddleboarding or just relaxing among the dunes. There’s a course if you’re itching for a round of golf, and there’s even a sweet, little waterfall tucked along the road into town. Already visited the world’s biggest ball of string? Swing by the world’s tallest totem pole. And on McKinleyville Arts Night, the third Friday of each month, you can tool around town and see what local artists, artisans and musicians young and old are up creating — maybe even take a piece home.

Blue Lake Humboldt residents socked in by summer fog know that they can generally find truth and relief in Blue Lake’s motto: sunshine and sea air. Where the Mad River takes its final stretch toward the Pacific, a small community of 1,200 displays an international reach. Once sawmills ruled, but now the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theater imports students from around the world to learn the craft of commedia dell’arte and perform dramas and old-school clowning year round. The schedule is packed during The Mad River Festival, a sprawling summer’s worth of theater and music events over six weeks. Depending on the season, those who are feeling lucky head for the casino or to fish for steelhead near the Mad River Fish Hatchery (also home to some popular swimming spots).

The town’s motto is “river fun in the mountain sun,” and it’s no joke. Willow Creek is hot enough for serious wine making or a cool dip in a Camp Kimtu swimming hole. The weather also means great produce at roadside stands. If you’re adventurous, you can throw on a vest and do some river rafting, and more leisurely types can fish or play a round of golf. Just keep your eyes peeled for a shadowy figure in the distance, because this is Bigfoot country. Skeptical? Swing into the China Flat Museum and explore the lore.

Arcata Home to Humboldt State University, Arcata is a magnet for arts, culture, entertainment and education. Hike the Arcata Community Forest or play among the big trees in Redwood Park.

The music spills into the streets and shops and restaurants turn into galleries during Arts Arcata!, the second Friday of every month.

Eureka This place is full of stories. Once a raucous lumber town and fishing village, early Eureka bustled with saloons and brothels, along with a hardy mix of rugged entrepreneurs looking to settle the North Coast. Jack London himself is said to have taken a swing in a barroom brawl in Old Town. Today, the boats still bring crab and salmon to the docks, and historic buildings at the edge of Humboldt Bay form a walkable enclave of places to browse, drink and dine. Slow down with a stroll along the waterfront trail or lean on the railing of the Old Town boardwalk and watch the boats go by. And don’t miss Arts! Alive, the first Saturday night of each month, when the streets fill up with folks touring the shops, restaurants and galleries for local art and live music.

Ferndale There’s a reason Hollywood keeps coming to film in Ferndale. It’s an idyllic American small town that hasn’t lost its character. (You might recognize Main Street’s Victorian architecture from movies such as The Majestic and Outbreak.) Ferndale’s downtown offers plenty to explore, including artist galleries, old-fashioned shops, classic restaurants and the Ferndale Museum. Grab a coffee and window shop the vintage storefronts and take photos of the Gingerbread Mansion, or put on your hiking shoes and take in the view from the bluffs in Russ Park or Centerville Beach. Downtown or in the great outdoors, it’s a trip back in time.

Eel River Valley Hike and bird watch on the newly opened Eel River Valley Estuary Preserve or head to Table Bluff for storm watching. Stroll along Loleta’s little row of main street shops, sample its famous cheese and admire the verdant rolling hills all around. Tour the former lumber company town of Scotia, with its rows of old, redwood houses, and see what’s going on at the Winema Theater, a gorgeous redwood monument to the heyday of the timber barons. Stop in Rio Dell for a dip in the river, unspoiled vistas and Arts on the Avenue along Wildwood Avenue the second Friday night of every month.


THE AVE By Nora Mounce

W

Avenue of the Giants. Greg Nyquist

hether it’s a gorgeous summer weekend or a wet, socked-in Tuesday afternoon, Humboldt County’s Avenue of the Giants doesn’t disappoint. Known by locals as “the Ave,” this 31-mile stretch was formerly part of U.S. Highway 101 until a more direct route was developed in 1960. As automobiles and logging trucks left to zip along the main highway, the Avenue of the Giants remained as a historic relic and a glimpse into slower and simpler times. The coastal redwoods that have grown quietly for centuries in this pocket of the world are as enormous and enchanting as you can imagine. The One Log House in Garberville lets visitors check out tree-house living in a 7-by-32-foot log chamber that once toured the country before retiring alongside 101. Farther down the Ave are short, well-marked loop trails suited even to the novice hiker. Or, you can stretch your legs in the forest at the F.K. Lane Grove on a 15-minute stroll under the dense redwood canopy. Bring extra layers to stay warm in in the shade and leave Fido in the car — dogs are not allowed on trails. If your timetable allows for recreation and you come during summer, a splash in the Eel River will cool you down, as will the quaint shops and cafés dotting the road selling cold drinks and ice cream. Those hankering for more refined refreshments can taste local wines along the avenue; keep your eyes peeled for signs around Redway. Finally, if your visit isn’t complete without navigating your car through a tree, stay alert around Myers Flat and you’ll pay a small fee for the bragging rights. The Ave offers visitors a choose-yourown-adventure experience — any drive along the road grants views of some of the region’s most beloved trees and is peppered with nostalgic gift shops and historic logging towns.

Garberville and Redway South of the Avenue of the Giants lies Garberville, where you can escape the coastal fog, enjoy warmer temperatures and hit the farmers market for a treat. The little town has a surprisingly robust nightlife scene and a wild and beautiful landscape of hills and forest that you can sample in Tooby Memorial Park. Check the calendar and see what’s playing at the Mateel Community Center in neighboring Redway — the venue regularly brings in major musical acts and puts on some of Humboldt’s biggest festivals, including Reggae on the River.

Aptly named the “lost coast,” Shelter Cove is nestled in a stretch of beach that offers a natural retreat tucked away in its own world. Accessible by sea and air, the town has one road in and one road out. Once there, enjoy fishing, hiking, boating, golf, excellent lodging and camping options. Settle in for winter storm watching, whale watching or a hike along a unique, 24-mile stretch of black sand beach. A natural coastline unfettered by highways and the normal coming and goings of humanity make Shelter Cove a singular American destination.
