June 1979 — Back in August 2017 (beginning with Memory Monday, Week 39) I shared the photos I took during my family’s 1979 road trip through Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, Canada. But missing from my collection were any images from our visit to Vancouver, B.C. — so I’m very happy that my mom recently discovered these photos that she […]
I recently finished listening to an audiobook called Enemy Child: The Story of Norman Mineta, written by Andrea Warren. Norman Mineta was born and grew up in San Jose, California; in 1942 he was an 11-year-old Cub Scout when he and his family were sent to Heart Mountain War Relocation Center in Wyoming. After the war his family were very […]
Every time I pass by Auburn’s old courthouse I want to stop and take pictures, but up until now I’ve never managed to actually do it. And even though a few things have changed in Auburn’s historic district since this episode of Road Trip first aired in 2003, watching Huell make the rounds has motivated me all over again. I’m […]
The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is All About Buildings: Tiny Buildings.

The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Anything Man Made.
Columbia State Historic Park has been on my must-see list for awhile now. In this 2005 episode of California’s Golden Parks, Huell gets the full Living History experience at the annual Columbia Diggins event. Once the second largest city in California, Columbia is a wonderfully preserved gold rush-era town, and it’s where Huell attends the annual Columbia Diggins celebration. (Click […]
The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is floats, things hanging on trees, rope, fishing items, grass, green, orange, white, blue, numbers, bare branches, or come up with your own topic. I chose to concentrate on fishing items.
Just like Huell mentions at the start of this 2003 episode of Visiting, I’ve been to the Orange Empire Railway Museum too, “years and years ago.” My visit was back in June 1982; but even then this museum — now known as the Southern California Railway Museum — in Perris, California, was well established. It was started in 1958 and […]
