Sunny California at its very best

After a proper American breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, jammy toast and a heaping cup of hazelnut coffee, the team headed out to the hills.

We headed off onto Resevoir Canyon, a trail covered in leaves and alined with dried creek beds. On one side we had a lush little lanes into the forest

on the opposite, rollings hills full of agave and wild sage

After spending so much time in the Alps, returning to my Californian roots was really refreshing

I used to view it as this dry deserted valley, with only the old oak trees and the fear of slithering snakes hidden in the tall golden grass

but this time around it was different, the curvature and topography of the grass lands really caught my eye

and of course the rope swing

The way the sun lights up the rolling golden hills and path ways

The little rippling rivers around the ravines

To most people California is a place of movie stars, shopping and parties, but seldom do people spend time taking it all in.

To me, California is much more than the man made cities, it is a view of never ending golden waves,
