This is my Dad's grandfather, who spent a brief time in Northern California. Gordon is the fourth fella from the left sitting atop the log (the one with playing cards sticking out of his pockets).
I have three brothers who live in Northern California in or relatively near Humboldt County and they've reason to believe that this photo might be in Humboldt County.
Some of the other photos from this set include pictures of an explosion at the log camp (from what, we don't know) and there's a known story about an explosion there in Humboldt at about the same time. Interesting twist, if true.
