California holds 23 federally protected areas. It has the 3rd most visited National Park in the United States-Yosemite. There are 550 miles of coastline along its pacific border. It houses the highest peak in lower North America with Mount Whitney and in the same breath the lowest place in the United States with Death Valley. And, it was the home to Ansel Adams and John Muir two of the most famous nature conservationists our country has ever seen. It is a place worth photographing and just plain exploring.
