N. Cal (Hornbrook, Yreka, Humbug)


Made a short trip to Northern California to explore a few mining districts and visit a friends claim.

We got a cool rental home thru VRBO.  Was $250 for 2 nights, had a pool table, 2 bedroom with a large bunk in one room.

Loved the art that was the front door

The backyard had a cool feel to it, but the horse wasn't there this week.

Had to visit the big city at least once

Around the corner from the rental in Hornbrook was this cool eatery, had milkshakes, sandwiches, biscuits/gravy and taco pie on the menu board, forgetting the rest.  The owner had lost everything in that horrible Talent OR fire, and had relocated here, was quite the character.  I'll be going back every time i'm in the area!

Across the Rogue River from the Almeda mine, part of the Big Yank Lode

I think I remember that the sign on I-5 for the Hornbrook exit is also for Henley. An old neighbor named his cat Henley Hornbrook, and a friend who was writing a book used Henley Hornbrook for a character.

Cool trip Noodler.
