California has so many beautiful landscapes. From the high Sierra mountains to the impressive California coastline, there is always somewhere new to visit & enjoy. Pack a picnic, grab your hiking boots & make an overnight trip of it. Several areas are designated National Monuments, some of which have become National Parks. The photo below is taken from the massive granite dome called 'Dome Rock', near the Needles, on the Western Divide Highway (inside the new Giant Sequoia NM, which is part of the Sequoia National Forest). Both granite locales are popular rock climbers destinations for the Southern Sierra Nevada mountains.
