Day 50,California, USA

California is the most populous state in the United States, and the third largest by area.

It is located on the West Coast of the United States, along the Pacific Ocean, and is bordered by Oregon to the north, Nevada to the east, Arizona to the southeast, and the Mexican state of Baja California to the south.

We are now flying over Hollywood! There is the Sign, a famous landmark in the Hollywood Hills area of Mount Lee in Los Angeles, California, spelling out the name of the area in 50 feet (15 m)high white letters.!!

Did you know that it was created as an advertisement in 1923, but garnered increasing recognition after the sign was left up.
From the ground, the contours of the hills give the sign its well-known "wavy" a
ppearance. When observed at a comparable altitude, the letters appear straight-across.

Nopi and Sita want to walk along the Walk of Fame sidewalk, w
hich now has a double row of stars and they want to take a double decker bus ride around the Hollywood stars' homes...........ok, shall we leave you girls here?

There, nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, is the valley of Yosemite National Park,

featuring the world's largest single piece of granite (El Capitan), North America's tallest waterfall (Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls), and three separate groves of giant sequoia trees – the world's oldest living things.

Wow, Mel was right, California is simply awesome, so we will definitely have to return to this state.

Hold on guys, isn't that the Chandelier Tree?

Yes, it is a 315 foot (96 metre) tall coast redwood tree in Leggett, California with a 6 foot (1.83m) wide by 9 foot (2.74m) high hole cut through its base to allow a car to drive through. The hole was carved in the 1930s!!

Wow , these trees are really tall!!
