Growing up in Southern California many of us spent lazy afternoons enjoying Huell Howser’s show, California’s Gold. He helped teach us to enjoy the small things in life, to always be curious & to do it all with kindness & a smile. His public broadcast show took pride in searching out the magic of our southwestern state & in a small way, helped inspire our brand WONDERLAND. We just wanted to take a moment to say ‘Thank you Huell, keep on searching’. | #californiasgold #huellhowser #legend #nationaltreasure #goldenstate #itsourthereifyoulookforit #wonderlandfindit #wishyouwerehere #yesterdaytomorrow #findit #wonderlandsun #pbsChristopher Friel
