Is this poison ivy

Humboldt County California

I would say, "no". The leaf shape and presence of thorns are not indicative of either poison ivy (not typically found in CA) or Pacific poison oak (found in CA).

What it is exactly I can't say either.

I suggest taking a sample to your local County Extension Office (found here: http://cehumboldt.ucanr.edu/ ) for assistance with identification.

Good luck and I hope this information proved useful to you.
