Eureka, CA

After a botched trip to Chico, CA for work, I went to Eureka, CA.  I traveled through 299; came back home on the 101, then through 20.  Wonderful drive!  I was fortunate that that weather was cooperative and the ride was relatively pain free!

Photo at Lucerne, CA. Clear Lake was pretty flippin' full.

While in Eureka, I visited the Blue Ox Millworks.  Blue Ox Millworks is a museum and historic park the public may visit and tour.   The facility is also a working factory where custom wood designs are created for restoration projects all over the nation.  It’s also a school for kids to learn the trade, and stay out of trouble.  The the program is supported by the Humboldt County Office of Education.

The human powered machines by Barnes Equipment Company were very cool!  All made circa 1868 – 1895.

I also spoke with the fine folks at Old West Shootery & Supply and they related to me there are two outdoor ranges; Green Diamond and Redwood Gun Club.  Didn’t have an opportunity to check it out.
