From its wonderful climate to its picture perfect land, California is the place to be. California is the 31st state in America and is nicknamed the “Golden State” because of the seven-year gold rush that started in 1848. California has the third largest land mass at, 158,706 square miles (Alaska and Texas are bigger). Its borders include, Oregon (north), Baja California (a state of Mexico to the south), Nevada (east) and Arizona (southeast).
Here you will find a diverse population reaching upwards of 37 million people. In fact, one out of eight Americans lives in California. And it’s no wonder. This state has some of the most beautiful scenery and land mass one could ever imagine. From the rolling waters of the Pacific Ocean coast to the mighty Redwood forests, Mojave Desert and even the majestic mountains of the Sierra Nevada, California is never in lack of landscape wonders.
In addition, California can boast the lowest point of elevation in North America with Death Valley’s Bad water Basin. It is 282 feet (86 meters) below sea level. A part of Death Valley named Furnace Creek hit a record high temperature of 134 degrees Fahrenheit (56.7 Celsius) on July 10, 1913. Scientists also believe that in prehistoric times this valley once held seawater, when the water dried up an abundance of salt was left in its place.
