Spent two weeks in northern California some 30 years ago. Camped a night on the side of Mt. Shasta. Absolutely beautiful. And that's before all the green things. Why ruin a good thing I guess. I flew into San Francisco and spent one night there. That's a day I would be happy to expunge from my memory from 1988 and I can't even imagine what it is like now. But the northern area absolutely gorgeous. Hope I can visit again one day but not with the inmates running the asylum.
