This has absolutely NOTHING to do with Yosemite but who doesn’t love Huell Howser? Jacob Soboroff from LAObserved.com happened to be checking out a new state park in downtown L.A. when guess who he happened to see also shooting in the park? You guessed it, none other than Huell himself. Great video.

Today’s awesome Morning Shot provided by Ben Metcalfe. Today’s Morning Shot is a beautiful shot of the Tufa at Mono Lake with the Sierra as the back drop.
