 Driving through the twisting and turning back roads of Humboldt you can often smell the sweet, floral aroma of hundreds of cannabis farms during harvest in the fall. The climate of the region is perfectly suited for growing cannabis, just as Napa and Sonoma are positioned to grow the finest grapes for winemaking.

 We were eager to try our hand on the Mattole and chase around some Steelhead.

 Everything here is slower, the locals warm and welcoming, the smiles wide and landscape electrifying. This combination of natural beauty and community defines Humboldt, while fuelling ideal conditions for the cultivation (and consumption) of the world’s finest terroir cannabis.

 We were informed that the recent rain and a nearby hillside were to provide impeccable conditions for foraging wild chanterelle mushrooms. Checking in fern patches and under fallen branches, we score a respectable bounty and headed back for breakfast.
