California adventures

I made the proud realization this weekend that in the six years I’ve lived in California, I’ve done a lot of exploring. I used to have a giant Yosemite trail map with all the trails I’ve been on highlighted. It gave a great visualization for how much of the park I’d seen. I thought it would be cool to map out where all in California I’ve been in a similar way.

I’ve traversed quite a bit of the state and have seen a lot of great California sites. Some of my top highlights include:

  • Redwood National Park
  • Mendocino
  • Trinity Alps
  • Mt. Lassen Volcanic National Park (including summit)
  • Yosemite (Half Dome, Cloud’s Rest, Buena Vista Loop)
  • Lake Tahoe
  • Napa and Sonoma
  • Farallon Islands
  • SF to LA on bike
  • Mono Lake, Bodie and the Eastern Sierra
  • Mt. Whitney (summit)
  • Joshua Tree

With that being said, there is still a lot of California I still want to explore, including:

  • Mt. Shasta (summit)
  • Pinacles
  • Devils Postpile
  • Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park
  • Death Valley
  • Channel Islands
  • Salton Sea
  • Palm Springs
  • San Diego and the OC

Are you satisfied with how much of your own state you’ve explored?
