Back in California – A Photo Diary

I visited California this past winter and fell absolutely in love! I knew I would go back eventually and little did I know, four months later, I’m back in the golden state. After graduation (yes, I’m a graduate now!), I left for California again. This time I would be there for 12 days. Here’s a list of all the places I visited:

  • San Francisco
    • Land’s End – Sutro Baths
    • Fisherman’s Wharf
    • Pier 39
    • Ferry Building Marketplace
    • Painted Ladies at Alamo Square
    • City Hall
    • Twin Peaks
    • Lombard Street
    • Palace of Fine Arts
    • Golden Gate Bridge
    • Mosaic Stairway
    • Grandview Park
    • Clarion Alley in Mission
  • Monterey
    • Big Sur
    • Bixby Creek Bridge
    • Monterey Bay Aquarium
  • Point Reyes
    • Point Reyes Lighthouse
    • Point Reyes Shipwreck
    • Tunnel Trees
  • San Jose
    • Santana Row
    • Historical Rose Gardens
  • Menlo Park/Palo Alto
    • Stanford Shopping Mall
    • Downtown Menlo Park
    • Downtown Palo Alto
    • Stanford Golf Course

I took quite a lot of pictures on this trip. How could I not? California is so fricken photogenic.

And here are some highlights!
