California's Gold with Huell Howser

Wedding of the Waters

In 1937, an amazing three-day event took place to celebrate the opening of a new road from Lone Pine to Death Valley. A gourd was filled with water from the highest lake in the U.S. on the side of Mt. Whitney. A trip commenced using all modes of important California transportation--Native American runner, Pony Express, miner and burro, 20-mule team, stagecoach, train, car and plane. With many famous participants, the water finally arrived at the lowest lake in the U.S, Bad Water Death Valley, and was poured in, thus consummating the Wedding of the Waters. Join Huell and Luis 60 years later as they recreate this historic event with a few people who were there the first time, many descendants of the original participants and tons of vintage photos and films on this incredible piece of "California's Gold."
