From deserts to mountains, coastlines to forests, California is a diverse and beautiful state. It contains almost every major climatological biome, with valleys of towering redwood forests, deserts of spiky Joshua trees, and rolling hills of vineyards.

California usually pops up on this subsite in relation to disasters, be it fire, drought, or earthquake, so it's nice to take a break to just bask in the awe-inspiring landscapes instead.
