San Miguel Island- California’s Gold (901)

In this episode Huell visits San Miguel Island, with a group of history buffs who recreate the 1542 landing of Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo – the 1st European explorer of the California Coast. Complete with authentic costumes, boats, and the fact that its done on the deserted white sandy beaches, this re-enactment really does take you back in time.

Huell is also joined by Nation Park Rangers, and a woman who actually lived on the island with her parents during the 1930’s and 40’s.
