Situated on the west coast, California is the most populous state in America. From the gold rushes of the 1800's to the Hollywood of today, it has long been the land where dreams are made. Traveller Justine Shapiro begins her journey in Palm Springs, a sparkling oasis in the middle of the desert. From there she travels to sprawling Los Angeles and tours the Hollywood Hills. Heading north she continues to beautiful Big Sur before leaving the coast for the Sierra Nevada Mountains. She ends her journey in Humboldt County - home of the Giant Redwoods.
