Huell Howser & Secret Stairs trip - Aug 21st & 23rd, 2018
« on: August 20, 2018, 11:42:55 AM »
For tomorrow, Tues, Aug 21, 2018, we are cruising the Carbon Canyon from Brea to Chino Hills.

Here is link to my dash cam video with a friend of mine who grew up in the area. He "narrated" the whole video.

Very interesting history of the area. Do you know there used to be a hot springs resort, learn to ski place, mental institution and mob killing etc ?. There is also a small Hindu temple there.

We'll have lunch in Chino Hills.

As usual meet at BofA (#4) at 8:30 am.

For Secret Stairs on Thursday, we are going to Musical Stairs.

This is #18 of the Secret Stairs of LA book.

This is where they filmed Laurel & Hardy moving a piano up the stairs. There is also another episode where they carry a block of ice - all the ice melted by the time they got up there.

As usual meet at BofA (#4) at 8:30 am.

Pictures from the trip

9 of us went on this trip.
First we drove along the Carbon Canyon road and stopped at several places to look at houses.
Most neighborhoods look like Big Bear or Arrowhead and some with mansions.
We also visited a Hindu Temple by 71 fwy in Chino Hills.
It's a must visit place, these pictures will convince you.
