"I come from a logging family and looking at all the historic logging equipment as a child, there on a field trip, I would think how hard is was, and tough you have to be, to be a logger in Humboldt County."
"This is a place where Native Americans were often imprisoned for wrong reasons. Silence around this is deafening. It felt haunting to be there."
"I remember being bored and uninterested as a child; and I lived less than a mile away from the fort. Now, having moved out of the area 15 years ago, I'm interested to go back and visit it as an adult."
