Oh I am well aware.  Can't wait to make the trip some day.  And when I do, a visit to Padre ... the man, the myth, the legend.

I've been several times, it is gorgeous, and worth going again.  Only National Park in New England too.  Although the White Mountain National Forest ain't bad either. :icon_cool:

Carrizo Plain National monument in California is a nice little gem I found years ago. 90% of the time its a desert but if the rains are right and you hit it in right time of the year (February-early April) you might get lucky and see the whole valley spring to life with wild flowers.








At least once a year I also make a trek to Parkfield CA and the surrounding Diablo/Temblor Mountain range. Something about the rolling golden hills spotted with sage oaks really does it for me. If you're ever in the Paso Robles or San Luis Obispo area I recommend a drive along the Parkfield Grade road.

My old photo really doesn't do it justice:
