The Emerald Triangle


The “Emerald Triangle”, the triad of Trinity, Humboldt and Mendocino Counties in Northern California. This is the home of BigFoot herself and secluded StarWars filming locales.  The forests are a hyper-saturated green with carpets of lacy young ferns and cushy vibrant moss clinging to rocks and dripping from the branches of giant ancient Redwoods that extend over to the rocky coastal cliffs. Drive further inland and there are endless rows of “emerald” colored grapevines undulating over hillsides, weaving striking symmetrical patterns like something straight out of M.C Escher’s mind. With all of its green-osity, no wonder its nicknamed “The Emerald Triangle” right?? – Wrong!  Because unless you’re following Prop 215 and have a lifetime subscription (or should I say ‘prescription’) to High Times, you will likely think that “The Emerald Triangle” is the latest OZ iteration or someplace west of Bermuda. The average tourist has no idea of its nickname which stems from being one of the worlds most abundant marijuana growing regions.

Check out our vibrant fashion  story of California’s ultimate laid back hippie utopia on our 3 day road trippin’ camping adventure to Glass Beach, Avenue of the Giants and the Russian River.
