California has a lot of different fun options. In the south it’s warm and sunny; there are deserts and rocks, and beaches and waves. In the middle it has places lower than the ocean, high mountain peaks, and low valleys filled with produce. In the north it has mountains with snow, lush Redwood forests, a plug volcano (we didn’t get to go because the roads were closed with snow), and rocky cliffs with crashing waves. There are LOTS of National Parks here. We missed two due to weather; with only about one week per state something has to give! Adios California. We’ll be back to see more (like LA and San Francisco!) For now we’re on to Oregon.
