Huell Howser visited quite a few historic California lighthouses throughout the years as he filmed one series or another. I’ve previously featured shows in which he explored the Point Sur Lighthouse, the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse, the St. George Reef Lighthouse, and even the tiny Battery Point Lighthouse up in Crescent City. And although he didn’t make it to every one […]
My last series of images from Denio’s Doggy Day, held this year on April 23, shows some of the event’s more fashionable attendees with their human escorts. This is such a popular and fun event for everyone; it’s tough to tell who enjoys it more, the humans or the dogs!

But the good news is that Huell spent a good bit of time exploring this cultural jewel, and for the next two Wednesdays I’m featuring the episodes he filmed there, showcasing the Central Garden and the […]
Here are a few photos from the Dachsund races — part of the annual Doggy Day at Denio’s, held this year on April 23.
As we headed over to Lake Berryessa on Tuesday morning, we were fully expecting to hit some kind of traffic delay on Highway 128 just beyond the town of Winters. I already knew that Cal Fire crews were conducting a controlled burn along the hillsides above Cache Creek on Monday and Tuesday; so it wasn’t a bit surprising to find […]
