Plan your trip to California
Though known for its buzzing city life, California is also teeming with natural splendor. Trek through Sierra Nevada trails at Yosemite National Park, admire some of the largest redwoods in the world, and make it a high priority to visit North America’s lowest point, Death Valley National Park. Soak in the oceanfront scenery at Big Sur and as you travel along the coastal Highway 1. You can’t beat backpacking through the backcountry of Los Padres National Forest while aquatic adventurists can take a boat to one of the five islands of Southern California’s Channel Islands National Park.
