The Adventure Continues… Old Wood

I’ll admit, a show about “old wood” doesn’t sound all that thrilling, but as usual Huell manages to come up with a fun as well as informational adventure. Originally aired in 2011, this episode of California’s Gold features two sites that I hope to visit in the future. First up, it’s a magnificent covered bridge in the Mother Lode town of Knights Ferry (not to be confused with the town of Knights Landing) and the second is the Petrified Forest near Calistoga in Napa County.

Join Huell on his quest to find some really old wood. The first stop is up in Knights Ferry to see the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi. Then Huell goes even further back in time and walks us through the petrified forest by Calistoga, CA.
