California is one of those places that continues to surprise me every time I go. If you live there, it feels like you’re part of a special club. You have everything — mountains, beach, desert, snow… California is pretty much the perfect place if you like exploring.
I headed out in late March to visit an old friend back from when I lived in the golden state (more than 20 years ago!) He also happens to be one of my favorite adventure buddies—both for the awesome places he shows me and the phenomenal pictures he takes (see below!) He’s helped me become a better photographer and a more adventurous person, for which I am very grateful.
But when he said he had a 1,500-mile road trip planned for the weekend, I was skeptical. That’s A LOT of driving! I’ll share more about that soon, but in short: we saw so much of California in only a few days and it was absolutely incredible. Here’s a collection of shots from our trip.
