Humboldt County Sheriff's Office/Facebook

If you've had a chance to watch Murder Mountain on Netflix, you'll recognize the name Humboldt County as being a particularly dangerous part of the American West. The docuseries focuses on the marijuana black market and the many dangers it presents the community of Humboldt County, California. One of the integral parts to Humboldt County is its dangerous terrain. People constantly go missing in the area, and residents tucked away in the wilderness tend to self-govern adding an extra layer of danger.

Recently, two young girls went missing in Humboldt County, but thanks to survival training, their ending was a happy one.


The Carrico sisters, five-year-old Caroline and eight-year-old Leia, were last seen outside their home in Benbow, CA at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1st.

The sisters were following a deer trail when they lost their way.

The young girls were lost for a terrifying 44 hours in an environment described by Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal as,

"...rugged territory, this is extreme environment."

According to the sheriff,

"[The girls] were trained through 4-H for outdoor survival, we believe that played a part."

These survival techniques included them dropping granola bar wrappers which gave a trail for rescuers to follow.

Even more impressively, once the girls realized they were lost, "they huddled together under a bush" and drank water from Huckleberry leaves.

They were found approximately 1.4 miles south of their home and had no injuries past being dehydrated and cold.

People all over are celebrating the sisters' miraculous rescue.

As Americans, as humans of the world, we are in some serious trouble. Society seems to be trapped in a constant hamster wheel of corruption and rot.

The sad part is that improvement can be easy, so easy.

They often say change is hard, I disagree; only accepting change is hard. The answer?

Stop being stubborn and angry and let change come.

There are so many options that could elevate so many lives in this country, in this world, just by being more nuanced with the law.
