Low Tide at Arcata Bay

Posted by

Humboldt County - California

Just as the north end of San Francisco Bay is actually San Pablo Bay - here, the north end of Humboldt Bay is actually Arcata Bay. These two bays define the shipping and fishing port city of Eureka, California.

Arcata Bay looks as though it is a large and substantial body of water - until the tide goes low - draining most of the area that is usually submerged. I began my one full day in the area with a morning hike along Arcata Bay. We will explore this landscape over the next several days.

What a strange and foreign landscape. Love the perspective you used to accentuate it.
