We have a photography rich environment close to home: redwoods, dunes, wild rivers, rocky shores and wetlands. This fog touched image is near one of those unnamed wetlands that help the lower Smith River breathe.
This shot was taken nearby at Yontocket. Yontocket was the site of an Indian massacre in 1853 and is now a Tolowa Indian burial ground.
The coastal plains supports more than wetland and wildlife. Beyond the row of low trees that mark the meandering Smith River, there is a ribbon of farmland. 99% of all Easter Lily plants start their lives here as bulbs. The bulbs are are grown to specific sizes then shipped out to greenhouse growers all over North America. Normally Easter Lilies bloom in the summer but growers make sure to hit the moveable Easter holiday with a spring bloom.
