California’s idyllic coastline stretches over 1100 miles from Mexico to Oregon, From the desert landscapes of the Mojave and Baja California, through Big Sur, Monterrey Bay, the San Francisco peninsula, to the temperate rain forests and Coastal Redwoods of NorCal. The beauty of its beaches, coves and bays are world renowned.
Moving eastward, after passing the central valley, the mighty Sierra Nevada mountains run the entire length of the state. Mt Whitney, the tallest mountain in the continental United States stands at a height of 14,505ft (4,421m). After the Sierra Nevada rain shadow, we reach perhaps the most otherworldly and unique desert landscape on planet earth, Death Valley. The lowest point on the continent, the salts flats of Badwater Basin are 282ft (86m) below sea level. It is also one of the hottest and driest places in the world. Stovepipe Wells reached a verified temperature of 129.9F (54.4C), the hottest temperature ever recorded on planet earth.

The Ancient Bristlecone pine forest in the White Mountains has been proven as having the oldest living specimen on earth, a pine tree that began growing before the Roman Republic. The western flanks of Sierra Nevada range are home to groves of giant Sequoias, the largest trees by volume in world. The record holder, General Sherman, stands at a height of 275ft (83m) and is 36ft (11m) in diameter at its base.
