Hiking in California

My vacation is turning out so well here in the US. I am currently in South Carolina traveling from Florida to Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York with some family members. But allow me to give you a rundown of my California experience. I took advantage of my driving trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco to check out some hiking destinations along the way. My good friend and musician Christine Mazur kept me company and lovingly shared her skills with the violin. She performed with me in San Francisco and LA.

Here is a list of “must see” places we’ve been to. I shall try to write separate blog posts for each location with more photos and videos of our hiking experience.

1. Muir Woods National Park (Mill Valley, CA) – part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It protects acres of old-growth giant redwoods.

Traversing the Dipsea and Ben Johnson Trail. This section allows a view of the hills lined with redwoods.

2. Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park (Big Sur, CA) – centered around the Big Sur River. It has been nicknamed a “mini Yosemite.”

3. Point Lobos (Carmel, CA) – contains a number of hiking trails, mainly next to the ocean, and some beaches. A site of historic marine reserve.

4. Pinnacles National Park (Paicines, CA) – a mountainous area located east of the Salinas Valley in Central California. The park’s namesakes are the eroded leftovers of the western half of an extinct volcano.

    South Carolina. You were just next to North Carolina. If it’s mountains you seek, there are oh so many of them here in NC. I hope you can visit the US again and perhaps have a show in NC. :)

      I plan to tour the US next year with my new album. Will you be interested to host a house party performance for me? And perhaps give the NC mountains a try. :)
