What's a week without the continued adventures of KCET's Golden State-trotting hero, Huell Howser? It's like a summer without sunshine, that's what. Follow along with Huell as he treks all throughout California, from the palatial grounds of a national landmark to kooky corner of one of SoCal's most-visited tourist destinations.
Monday @ 7:30 PM -- "Sea Shadow"
It's a brand new episode of "California's Gold!" With his big smile, unmistakable accent and overall outgoing nature, stealth is not a concept you're likely to associate with Huell Howser. That doesn't mean Huell can't appreciate the awesome power of the Sea Shadow, a naval vessel built in 1984 and designed specifically to test the limits of stealth technology.
Tuesday @ 7:30 PM -- "Under Lake Arrowhead"
That's right -- "under." In this episode, Huell explores a forgotten, submerged history behind San Bernardino's famous reservoir, starting with a long elevator ride deep into the earth and then a trek along a 3,000-foot, subterranean tunnel that was initially meant for irrigation use.
Wednesday, @ 7:30 PM -- "Capitol Steps"
How many steps are there in our state's capitol building? It's more than you think, and you can count along as Huell climbs to the very top.
