California boasts nine national parks—more than any other state—and each has its own unique appeal. Death Valley is the biggest, the hottest, and the most foreboding. Joshua Tree possesses an otherworldly charm and so much dynamic flora. If you want to escape civilization, head to the Channel Islands. For big trees, Kings Canyon & Sequoia are both superb. Yosemite National Park is a World Heritage site and it’s easy to see why. Pinnacles is an ideal spot to see endangered California condo
