I’ve been featuring episodes from Huell Howser’s various TV shows every Wednesday since September 28, 2016, and I still have loads and loads of episodes to go! Although Huell passed away in January 2013, he’s still very much remembered and missed, and he left behind a unique treasury showcasing many of the best parts of the state. This episode of […]
The great San Francisco earthquake of 1906 may be history, but the cause of the quake — movement along the San Andreas Fault — still occurs all up and down the coast of Northern California. Sonoma County’s Hot Spot is only one of several faults along the San Andreas Fault Zone. I’ve found it nearly impossible to find much information […]
I’m not sure of the location of any of these images although I keep trying to ferret out any possible visual clues. I believe some of them may have been shot around the Korean Folk Village site; this living museum depicts traditional life during the Joseon dynasty. One photo below shows the album’s original owner posing next to a stone […]
Although the iconic notion of a lighthouse is a lonely structure standing straight and tall on the rocks, dashed by the raging sea, lighthouses actually come in many shapes and sizes. Most US lighthouses these days are either completely automated or else they’ve been done away with altogether. I feel quite lucky I’ve been able to visit a few of […]

I don’t have any profound theme going on today — just a small and completely random selection of photos I’ve shot over the past seven years. Today they’re helping remind me how blessed I’ve been, able to visit these different spots and to have these memories to hold onto.
He didn’t have to look too hard to find all sorts of examples of life when Huell visited Death Valley National Park for the first time. This Classic episode of California’s Gold originally aired back in June 1995. I’ve previously featured an hour-long episode entitled “Springtime in Death Valley,” but it was filmed ten years later, in the spring of […]
I’ve often heard it said that cats are especially attracted to people who dislike them, and that sure seems to be true around here. I wouldn’t say that the Big Guy hates cats, but he has absolutely no patience for them strolling around on top of our cars and using our yard for a litterbox. His resentful feelings didn’t stop […]
I can’t really be certain where most of the photos in this album were shot, but trying to figure it out has led me to some interesting places! Using the translator in the Google Lens app I noticed the name Namsan Clinic in the image above; Mt. Namsan and Namsan Park are located in the south portion of Seoul. I […]
