The Golden State
California is a state that runs along the Pacific Coast of the United States of America. With 39.5 million residents, it’s the most populous state in the U.S.
One of the most ecologically diverse areas in the world, this state occupies the area south of Oregon and north of Baja California. Meanwhile, Nevada and Arizona lie to the state’s east.
Because of it’s varied climates and landscapes, this state is a favorite for photographers and visitors alike. In the north, redwood–Douglas fir forests reach the skies. Yet in the southeast lies in the arid Mojave Desert. The Central Valley, a major agricultural area, dominates the state’s central area, as well as its economy.
Though this state boasts a warm, Mediterranean climate, its large size results in climates that vary from moist temperate rainforest, to arid desert, as well as snowy alpine mountains.
