I should know better by now. Every week as I look through the list of titles in the Huell Howser archive, I have a tendency to skip over many of the place names that are unfamiliar to me. For some reason, I’ve assumed most of them were located in Southern California — so the chances that I had ever been […]
Blustery northwest winds along the California coast have been putting a bit of a damper on my outdoor photography plans this week, but I did find some birds today on my morning walk. Hopefully things will calm down a little before long.
I’ve previously shared photos of the area around Leavenworth, Washington, where my mom spent part of her childhood.

In this one-hour segment Huell experiences a true adventure as he takes a drive along Highway 101 and some of the other, smaller roads that made up portions of the historic California trail between the missions. His visit to the foundry where they create bright, shiny new bells for […]

But I’ve also realized a couple of things. I can’t help wishing there were more options. Although there are nearly 40 different cool effects to choose from, after using […]
