California has some of America's nicest cities, some of the biggest trees in the world, the most famous highway, Highway 1, and nature that keeps me coming back again and again. Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Redwoods, Joshua Tree are just a few of the wonderful national parks that can be found in California. Accessible, magnificent and unforgettable are three good words to describe California's nature.
