This week, I’m taking another look not at slides but at some black and white prints that I first shared back in early September 2018, in Memory Monday Week 82. I’ve never had the chance to visit these particular locations, but if you click on that link and scroll down, you’ll see a color image of the above photo that […]
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 […]
It’s been many years since I spent time on the Sacramento end of the American River Parkway, but several times back in the 1970s I did ride what was at the time the entire length of the bike trail, 23 miles from Discovery Park to the Nimbus Fish Hatchery. These days the parkway and bike trail extend for 32 miles, […]

I may never get to travel across […]

Originally I believed the location was the American River Canyon below Auburn, but on further inspection I decided it’s more likely somewhere […]
Flying home from Southern California last week, I got a few photos — mostly near the beginning and the end of the flight. Sacramento was easy for me to identify, but I also had fun comparing Google Earth to my images and figuring out what was outside my window, like the San Gabriel Reservoir and a section of the 210 […]
I can positively identify only one of the locations in this week’s images (see above), but I’d be happy if anyone else has any ideas. Still, I have to say I’m really enjoying the more realistic colors I’m now getting!
