    Humboldt Sweet Spots: Snap Four Photos
    Don Forthuber
    Nab a "free comfy t-shirt" by posting the photos of certain places around Humboldt County on the Redwood Coast Facebook page (or emailing them). One of the locations on the list? Arcata Plaza.

    IT'S TRUE: You adore Humboldt County. You know all the backroads. You always ask for the same table at the Samoa Cookhouse. You've spent many a sunny summer afternoon soaking in the rays on Arcata Plaza. You not only have a favorite redwood, you have a personal top ten list, and you visit 'em all when you're in their neck of the (literal) woods. And Ferndale? You have to be among the quaint Victorian buildings, each December, when the big tree is lit. But how do you best show all of your amour for the wild-wonderful, historical-happy, waves-and-wood-and-murals destination? Well, by visiting it regularly, surely, and sharing its many treasures with those friends who would also appreciate that admirable Humboldtian approach to living well (it has a touch of wise ease that all people in all counties could surely benefit from adopting). But you can also show your redwood-based affections by taking four selfies, or snapshots of friends, and posting them on the Redwood Coast Facebook page. If you don't want to go that route, you can...

    EMAIL FOUR PICS... to a contact on this page, which has the list of the locations that the pictures should include. Arcata Plaza made the roster, and Willow Creek's beloved Bigfoot statue, and, of course, Avenue of the Giants, too. Peruse the pretty places, see if you have four pics, or, better yet: Plan a trip up to snap some fresh ones. What you'll get for sharing your photos? A "comfy tee." There are 16 Humboldt spots in all that you can include, and we just know you've been to all of 'em, or most of them, because you love trees and picturesque plazas and storied restaurants and trees. Oh, did we type "trees" twice? Well, we're leaving it, because trees are at the heart of much of area's particular, eons-old magic. If you love all things Humboldt, snap or send your four pics, and then get and wear your comfy tee, the one the Eureka-Humboldt Visitors Bureau will give you, as long as supplies last, on your next trip to the fabled region.
