California is such a big state that covers most of the west coast, so just because I’ve explored what was just round the corner in San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, there is still much much more in California that I’d love to see and do. Here are just a few on my wish list.
One road trip in California that has always fascinated me is the Pacific Coast Highway. It’s twisting, cliff-hugging, and exhilarating. The Pacific Coast Highway begins in Olympia, Washington, and over 1,500 miles later you’ll arrive in San Diego. http://www.roadtripusa.com/routes/pacificcoast/pacificcoast.html. I’d love to do either all or parts of the highway on another trip to California.

A national park along the Pacific Coast Highway is another place on my wish list, Redwood National and State Parks. http://www.nps.gov/redw/index.htm. This park has some of the oldest and tallest trees.
Another National Park that’s on the wish list is the Sequoia National Forrest - http://www.nps.gov/seki/index.htm. It has giant trees and is a huge canyon area.
A place on my wish list and a location I’m half tempted to go to this summer is Yosemite National Park. Anyone interested in coming with me? Here’s where to get helpful information on planning a trip to Yosemite - http://yosemitepark.com/, http://www.myyosemitepark.com/ and http://www.nps.gov/yose/index.htm. I’m not entirely an outdoor girl, but I love seeing the animals and seeing the breathtaking scenes including the waterfalls. I’ve heard it rivals Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, which I loved. I want to see Bridal Veil Falls which is 620 feet high and El Capitan. It’s just amazing looking.

This week, we’ve looked at what I’ve done and what I’d like to do in California. Do you know of any places I should include on my wish list for California? If so, please leave a comment below. It’s amazing what you’ll find just round the corner. Next week, we’ll look at Colorado!
