|Etta's Place - Red Bluff 2007|
In 2007 Mike took a photo trip into the "Narrow Roads of the Far North," as a kind of homage to Basho's Oku no Hosomichi. In Mike's case, the narrow roads were in Northern California, unfortunately still a kind of terra incognita to the urbanites of the California coast. Since this happened before the start date of Mike's exquisite blog none of the photos have been posted here. So some of the photos from that trip will be appearing on the blog, along with some 2014 pix as well as some earlier scanned black and white photos.
Traveling to the north means going up highway 5, not a narrow road by any stretch of the definition. But once in Red Bluff, you can travel to the east towards Lassen National Park and into the mountains.
And as you can see, Etta's Place is certainly Open.
