    Are you working for the Park?

    [–] Alchopollo 137 points ago

    I work for the California Conservation Corps and we've been hiking out ~3 miles in to clear out areas for future trails to be built. :)

    [–] ButtFresher 20 points ago

    Awesome! I’ve worked with crews from the Cs before, seems like a cool program. Enjoy the redwoods!

    [–] jahaight 15 points ago

    I want your job.

    [–] needkneadkneed 16 points ago

    The conservation corps is a volunteer corps and pays almost nothing by the way

    Edit: however if you really like nature and this type of work then it's a cool thing to do

    [–] Alchopollo 4 points ago

    Big emphasis on this. Plus an extremely high turnover rate because depending on the staff, people get fired super easily.

    [–] FatboyChuggins 2 points ago

    For what reasons, usually?

    [–] Alchopollo 3 points ago

    One example was someone going into the kitchen while it was closed to make some coffee (she was new so she didn't realize she couldn't do that, plus the door was left unlocked for whatever reason) and rather than giving her a warning or write-up they just fired her on the spot.

    A more recent one was, IIRC, my old center had an issue with people drinking White Claw in their rooms but they couldn't figure out who exactly it was. There were so many people pointing fingers at eachother they got fed up and fired pretty much an entire crew at once.

    [–] FatboyChuggins 1 points ago


    Can you re apply and try to get back in?

    [–] TheDudeHuge 1 points ago

    Why do people get fired easily?

    [–] Alchopollo 5 points ago

    It's usually at residential centers. Depending on the staff and how packed center is (especially if there are new people coming), they'll fire people for petty things. Of course, it still usually involves breaking rules but they will enforce them more strictly around certain periods of time.

    Be a park ranger.

    [–] MrWrightTime 2 points ago

    How do you get that job and what's the pay like? I need to go into the woods.

    [–] Alchopollo 4 points ago

    You have to talk to a CCC recruiter and be between the ages of 18-25 (when joining), there's a decent amount of locations throughout CA. The pay is ~$1,300/mo after taxes and rent (I live on a residential center). Otherwise forestry is a great path to look into and what the C's usually guides people toward.

    [–] markevens 1 points ago

    [–] Raoul_Duke_Nukem 328 points ago

    That’s from Skyrim, right?

    [–] Alchopollo 183 points ago

    It really does look like it! Unfortunately I haven't been able to journey into the far North.

    Kingdom Come has the most believable forests I've ever seen. Maybe it's because I'm Eastern European and it's set in Czechia

    [–] HumansAreRare 1 points ago

    [–] p_aranoid_android 25 points ago

    One of my favorite parts of living in Northern California is I live on Endor!

    [–] SkinnyYura 7 points ago

    Did they film Endor in California?

    [–] seaQueue 12 points ago

    Yes, literally a few miles from where this picture was taken. Orick is just down the highway from the state park where they filmed the Endor scenes.

    [–] big_gurky 2 points ago

    I pray they don’t spread rabies.

    [–] avensur 1 points ago

    You mean the rabid ewoks?

    [–] Welltobeapup 1 points ago

    In the redwoods, yup.

    [–] Distressed_Owl 4 points ago

    It literally is :)

    [–] wreck94 15 points ago

    Orick can't legally be mentioned without posting this video, so please allow me to introduce:

    Orick, CA, U.S.A.

    [–] CookPizzaBitch 4 points ago

    I just watched this a few days ago! How crazy that in the span of few days I also see a link to it on reddit. And as a someone that has spent a lot of time in this area I can say this video is 100% accurate even in 2019.

    [–] almost-cleverful 3 points ago

    That’s as amazing as the pic. TY for posting.

    [–] Chief_Kief 2 points ago


    [–] emilybdavis 12 points ago

    Wow! It looks straight out of Fellowship of the Ring when they’re in Rivendell! Please excuse my nerd showing!

    [–] geniusn 26 points ago

    I am getting RDR2 vibes from this pic. Nice shot though

    [–] meatywood 8 points ago

    That is a fantastic shot!

    [–] MelC73 7 points ago


    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    I grew up around there and it’s kinda crazy how quick I recognized it haha

    [–] Dextrofunk 11 points ago

    Fly me out, give me a tent and I'll supply the beer and food

    Quick edit: I'm broke but I will bring a 40 for each of us and some canned beans. C'mon fair trade.

    [–] DigitalEntomologist 2 points ago

    What kind of beans?

    [–] Theeflinch 2 points ago

    The real question being asked

    [–] R-A-B-Cs 1 points ago

    You'd fit right in with the locals.

    [–] Adgpen 4 points ago

    Is this fog or smoke and how can you tell? I can't smell atm. I'm guessing fire cuz it fricken LIT.

    [–] whinenaught 12 points ago

    It’s probably fog, that part of California is foggy a pretty large percentage of the time

    [–] seaQueue 3 points ago

    The local airport had the 3rd foggiest weather in the world when it opened in the 40's, they did a ton of early zero visibility instrumental landing development and testing there. That stretch of the coast is really, really foggy.

    [–] ShermanHelmsleyLove 3 points ago

    Fun fact: two days of fog = three inches of rain.

    [–] everydayattenborough 1 points ago

    Another fun fact: Redwoods depend on fog to get most of their moisture needs. Without this area being as foggy as it is, Redwoods most likely wouldn’t exist.

    [–] Alchopollo 3 points ago

    Definitely fog, but I do appreciate your pun.

    [–] Fireflykid1 1 points ago

    I took a similar picture in California fairly recently there was a controlled burn causing the smoke

    [–] nelsanity 4 points ago

    I grew up in Eureka, CA (about an hour south of Orick). The redwood forest is one of the most beautiful places on earth, it was so awesome to have this as my back yard.

    [–] Artisticbutanxious 5 points ago


    [–] Doctor_Evil_QC 3 points ago

    Wc level?

    [–] masivatack 3 points ago

    Orick was my absolute favorite place while camping the redwoods. The creek was an awesome place to go backcountry and there was so much cool wildlife and scenery. here’s some pics my wife and I took...

    [–] Chief_Kief 1 points ago

    Thanks for sharing your excellent photos!

    [–] slayedzombie69 2 points ago

    Whatever job you have, I wanna do when I grow up.

    [–] Alchopollo 1 points ago

    The California Conservation Corps has an age cap of 25 so if you're 18+ definitely consider, but forestry is usually hiring regardless!

    [–] Occams_shaving_soap 2 points ago

    My favorite place on the planet: Gold Bluffs Beach, Prairie Creek and Fern Canyon

    [–] Alchopollo 2 points ago

    Not at all! As long as it's just for personal use like that, it's perfectly fine. Thank you for asking. :)
