Rainy Day in Petrolia

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 11 April 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Petrolia, California

This little town - along the Mattole River is completely charming. It is also very remote. The nearest town of any real size is Eureka. It is a mere 77.6 km (48 miles) away - but with a driving time of 1 hour 29 minutes according to Google.

The last image in this series appears tomorrow as we proceed out towards Highway 101 and home to San Francisco.

@Mirko Herzner: I must report getting a bit wet. I discovered long ago - that we dry off eventually!

@Alun Lambert: You are right Alun - and it is nice to hear from you. This could well be western England or Wales until you get to the general store. That was pure beef jerky, Fritos, and cold beer American.

Betty from New Jersey, United States

These rainy, cloudy shots are just beautiful. Nice series.
