McWay Falls, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park (near Big Sur)
One of my favourite shots, taken on Highway 190, between Bakersfield and Death Valley National Park. The area is dead quiet except for the wind, and the road runs into the distance each way you look.

California is so pretty. From the Mojave desert to the Sierra mountains to the Pacific coast, there is so much variety of landscapes in the state. For me, it'll never quite replace the majestic Rockies of southern Alberta where I grew up, but California really is a special place (at least geographically) to live.
Now if only the rents weren't so darn high!
