The Adventure Continues… Center of California

Awhile back I covered the episodes from Huell Howser’s Road Trip series in which he visited the five corners of the California. Today, Huell undertakes an investigation to find the geographic center of the state — which turns out to be a little more complicated than you might expect!

Huell travels in search of the geographic center of our state and in the process visits a whole string of towns that lay claim to being “the center of California.” With the help of locals and a cartographer from the U.S. Geological Survey, Huell finally locates the exact spot and marks it by planting a state flag. He also checks out the Palm and Pine trees planted on Highway 99 that signify the divide between Northern & Southern California.
