The Adventure Continues… Places I’ve Wanted to Go

Huell clearly had a lot of fun in this episode of California’s Gold, originally aired in 2009. I love the idea of taking the time to finally go see those places you’ve always wanted to see; my own list includes the Winchester Mystery House and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. But Huell chooses a couple of spots that I had never heard of before, and even though I may never go see them for myself, I’ve discovered a few new things about California’s colorful past.

And by the way, if you’re curious to see whether that 119-year-old light bulb is still burning, you can check it out for yourself right here.

Join Host Huell Howser on an adventure to two places he’s been wanting to visit for years! First up is a stop along Highway 395 in the town of Lee Vining to see the Upside Down House. Built by Nellie Bly O’Bryan and inspired by children’s books – it is considered Mono County’s first man-made tourist attraction. Huell gets a tour from some of the locals who lovingly restored it after many years of decay. Next is a stop at the Livermore Fire Department to see the 107 (and counting) year old lightbulb. Learn how and why this bulb has been burning nonstop for over 100 years.
