Road Trip

Mother Lode

Travel with Huell to Gold Country on this very historic road trip. Most people assume “gold country” is all mining tours and gold panning, but Huell finds lots of hidden gold! We visit Moaning Caverns, which are big enough to fit the Statue of Liberty, a historic pipe organ, and a wonderful museum in Angels Camp and a giant gold nugget housed in a winery. There’s also a very important Mark Twain connection, a very historic hotel in Murphy’s and a stop at the Calaveras Jumping Frog Jubilee. We’ll even meet a historic jackass named Mollie.

Julian

Described as "the ultimate Sunday drive destination," Huell Howser's latest Road Trip takes him to the rustic town of Julian, in northern San Diego County. Settled as a gold mining town in 1869, Julian did not disappear once the mines were depleted. The residents planted apple orchards, and apples remain the backbone of the local economy. Join Huell as he hears the rich history of the area, and samples Julian's famous apple pies.
