Newberry Springs

After seeing a web site devoted to all the great cultural and historic sites to view along the original Route 66 in the Newberry Springs area, Huell prints out the map and hops in his car--eager to start his next Road Trip. He doesn't find the Buffalo Ranch, Big Al's Pistachio Plant, or the Ostrich Farm he was looking for, but Huell does meet a group of warm, interesting and generous Newberry Springs locals. And, after spending a day there, Huell discovers firsthand that the beauty and strength of a town, any town, is not in the number of its attractions or tourist stops, but in the friendliness and character of the people who call it home. You're invited to come along for the ride... its gonna be a great trip!

Anza Borrego

On this desert adventure, Huell visits the Anza Borrego Desert State Park and the community of Borrego Springs. The Park is the largest state park in California, with five hundred miles of dirt roads, 12 wilderness areas and miles of hiking trails. It's one of the most beautiful places on earth. Huell then gets to know the locals in town and visits some wonderful businesses. He samples some goodies at the Fudge Factory and checks out some very unique art at Liesel's Art Studio and has lunch at an unlikely French bistro, the French Corner.
