Being in Death Valley feels like you're on another planet. Your depth perception is messed around with while in the valley, and you see formations and colors that you think shouldn't be there. The rivers are salt water and it gets up to the high 90s in the basin even in the winter months. Lastly, there is a pool of ...

The best thing to do here is befriend a local and find spots that only locals know. Or if you're really an adventurist, park on the side of the road and hike inland for a couple of miles and camp. You'll be amazed at what you find.

Sequoia National Park has been overshadowed by Yosemite National Park, which is located north of this park. Not as popular, but it still has a lot to offer. My first camping experience happened to be in Sequoia, which was a "Bucket List-like" experience. Since we were here at night, the biggest difference was the night sky as you could see ...

Monterey has always been the stuff of dreams and legend. Haphazard Spanish explorer Sebastian Vizcaino arrived here in 1602 and sealed his fame and fortune by describing Monterey Bay in mythical terms and then naming it after the ruler who sent him. In 1769, Gaspar de Portola came looking for Vizcaino’s Monterey, but continued on after a brief stop, since ...

This park has snared my soul. It's such a gorgeous cross-section of everything the Sierra Nevada offers travelers: chaotic waterfalls, glacially cut valleys, ancient sequoia trees, black bear dens, berry bushes, bird song, and tranquility. Getting far fewer visitors than Yosemite, Kings Canyon is rarely crowded (except on summer holiday weekends and all throughout the month of August). First-come, first-served ...

This small Sonoma County town serves as a little piece of gay heaven. Many people come to enjoy the Russian River and sunshine when San Francisco gets cold, clammy. Many wineries are a few minutes away, especially noted is the Korbel Winery making bubbly. A gay bar and other gay-friendly businesses make for a perfect weekend getaway. Many nearby side ...

Home sweet home, what else can I say? :) Of all the place I've traveled in the world (so far), this golden bay city is my favorite. The weather is gorgeous 95% of the year, and there is no shortage of things to do - from the nightlife bars and clubs to Seaport Village, Balboa Park, Old Town, Sea World, ...

This is a beautiful, windswept beach. Good spot for surfing, although since there was a Great White attack here a year or so ago I am a little scared about getting into the water.

A great place to go if you're interested in getting far from the city but not far enough where you have to drive a long way back. Pacifica is the spot for catching some waves, or looking at a beautiful sunset. The homes here to sit on the side of the hill and are beautiful.
