Keep heading north-east from there and pause for lunch in mesmerizing Spruce and Pine forests straight from the nightmares of the Brothers Grimm. Then climb upwards and even at this time of the year you can find yourself in a white-out blizzard in our local Bear mountains, and drive own into the desert for an epic purple sunset across the colors of sand and rock. Literally, we have everything. I have thought of leaving, but LA is like a vortex. The furthest I could get would be somewhere else in California..
Yeah, topographically, California's hard to beat.
