I'm in California right now.
It's so fun to say that. :) I was recently in southern California, and am now in Merced, which lies near the center of the state. A previous roommate of mine, Mike, came out to visit his parents for a week and invited me to tag along. Gas is relatively cheap to what it was a year or so ago, so I figured I'd enjoy another foray into the golden state.
We spent the last two days in the Monterrey area. If you've never been, I suggest you go once in your life. It's a beautiful city, and to the South lies a gorgeous area known as "Big Sur". Highway 1 runs along the coastline here and treats you to some of the most breathtaking scenery you'll ever enjoy. I shot the picture at the head of this post on one of the many "pull over" points on the highway.
I will post more when I get home. I have a million pictures that I can't wait to show you.
