These images were taken with my Nikon D7000 beater camera and 30
year old, $1,000 35mm f/1.4 manual focus lens. Kinda rainy today so
didn't want to get the good camera wet.

First known as Snipe, named for the post office there, it later became Alba and
later Albee after the Albee brothers, well-known stockmen.

The Snipe Post Office was opened in 1881 and takes its name from the local
geographic names of Snipe Valley and Snipe Creek, named for the many Snipe birds
which called that area home. A year later, the post office was renamed "Alba" for
the town of the same name. Alba was given its name by Eber Gambee, reportedly a
professor of Greek and Latin. "Alba" means "white" in Latin.

It became known as Albee at some point around the turn of the century. Named for
the local Albee brothers, it is uncertain when the name was changed. As late as
1916, people were noted in the local news as coming into Ukiah from Albee and Alba.

A County map will really help in finding these places.
Well graded gravel road ~ 10 miles to Ukiah.
