Two of my favorite subjects, Yosemite and trains, feature in today’s episode of California’s Gold. Huell absolutely loved riding on old trains, and the scenery is of course spectacular. I found it especially interesting that at the time this episode was filmed, the forest the train travels through was no more than 70 years old — having been entirely clear […]
This week I’m finishing up the scenes from the Yosemite region shot in 1951. You can find my previous Yosemite post (week 6) right here; and you’d like to compare my earlier versions of these slides, you’ll find them in my Memory Monday, Week 5, post from December 2016. Next week, I’ll take another look at some slides from Lake […]
Images from a trip to Yosemite National Park in 1951; I originally posted these pictures in December 2016.
I spent last Sunday morning exploring the vernal pools near Mather Field, on a very fun and educational Flower Walk hosted by Sacramento Splash. So I thought today I’d share an episode of California’s Gold in which Huell takes a trip toTuolumne Meadows, in Yosemite National Park. He was visiting in the summertime rather than the spring, but there’s still […]

I know my parents have been there — as evidenced by their photographs, some of which I shared in Memory Monday, Week 4 — and it’s definitely on my bucket list. Yosemite has seen quite […]
This week I’m sharing the final set of images from my box of professionally photographed slides. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing them as much as I have! I’ll be taking a break from Memory Monday next week (and possibly the week after that) as I try to decide what’s next. My new scanner has made such a huge difference in […]
This weekend we will be observing not only Earth Day (Sunday, April 22) but also the anniversary of the birth of John Muir (Saturday, April 21), who is often called the “patron saint of the American wilderness.” So this week I’ve chosen an episode of California’s Gold in which Huell has a fascinating conversation with John Muir with the beauty […]
