California's Lost Coast is a remote stretch of coastline in southern Humboldt and northern Mendocino counties. The 60+ mile coastline includes sandy and rocky beaches to the north and mountains plunging into the ocean to the south. Rugged mountains border the entire coast.

The Marin Headlands Loop is a spectacular hike through one of the Bay Area's most scenic areas. It offers enough of a challenge to keep you working and enough casual strolls along ridge lines and valley floors to relax your muscles.

Yosemite Valley is one of the most beautiful places in the Sierra. It is well worth an afternoon, or even longer if you can stand the crowds.
