California: The Golden State
   California, third largest state in America, is unmatched in topographical diversity. The journey eastward passes the rugged beauty of its long coastline, giving way to the Coastal Range, and some of the most fertile valleys on Earth. Oddly enough, some of the most productive farmland in the country lies adjacent to one of North America’s tallest mountain ranges. Its deserts are some of hottest places on earth, and its forests hold some of the largest and as well as the tallest trees in the world.
   Protecting all these marvelous natural wonders, California is also home to some of the world’s most famous national parks and wilderness preserves. Yosemite, Death Valley and the Golden Gate national parks attract millions of visitors every year.
