It is with great sadness that this blog reports the passing of Huell Howser (October 18, 1945 – January 7, 2013).  Huell, most noted for his explorations and ramblings through California, became famous recording the geography, culture, and history of the Golden State in his PBS TV show "California's Gold" from 1994 through 2012. Huell was a unique character who was a native of Gallatin, Tennessee who thrived in his adopted state of California with his love of everything Californian.

For more information on Huell Howser please see his Wikipedia entry.

Farewell fellow traveller and discoverer. We will miss you.
