The Vasquez Rocks are located in a 900 acre park in Northern Los Angeles known for its wildlife and its awe inspiring monoliths. These unique rocks have shared many a big and small screen in some of our favorite movies (Blazing Saddles anyone). Yet they are easily accessible at an awesome county park that is also […]

Antojitos Como En Casa: Fantastic Mexican Food in El Centro

I have grown up in Southern California and haven eaten Mexican food since I was a baby, so when I say Antojitos is fantastic I really mean it is one of the best Mexican places I have been to outside of Mexico. If you are in the vicinity of El Centro (I know it is […]

California Donuts in Los Angeles: Serving Panda Donuts 24 Hours a Day

I love donuts so much that I even like seeing pictures of donuts that I am not eating. This is how I stumbled on California Donuts on Instagram and had been following them for a few months before I even got a chance to visit them myself on St Patricks Day. They do a great […]

Peterson Automotive Museum: A Car Lovers Paradise

Closed for remodels until December 2015, visit the official site to follow the progress. I have never been someone that is hugely into cars, I mean they are cool and all but I have nerded out about much different things in my life. Thus I have never made it a point to see Peterson Auto Museum […]

Monterey to San Francisco: Pacific Coast Highway Roadtrip Guide

After passing Big Sur this day can be a little anti-climactic but you will be ending in the famous San Francisco so that alone is exciting if you have never been. A lot of my recommendations here are in Santa Cruz as I love that town, I would love to hear what you like to […]

San Luis Obispo to Monterey: Pacific Coast Highway Roadtrip Guide

Todays drive may be my favorite on all of Pacific Coast Highway as it includes the amazing Big Sur coastline. Because of this I would recommend not trying to cram too much in as your drive through Big Sur will most likely have you pulling over all of the time to see the views, so be […]

Malibu to San Luis Obispo: Pacific Coast Highway Roadtrip Guide

After your day driving along the beach yesterday this drive will only be along the beach for the first half before it heads back inland. This is another full day so I would recommend picking the things you really want to stop at so that you don’t overwhelm yourself. This stretch of California coast has a […]

Ranchita Yeti 5

Ranchita Yeti: The California Desert Bigfoot

I am always on the lookout for the stranger parts of California, so when Last Adventurer and I went and explored Anza-Borrego we decided we had to stop at the Ranchita Yeti and inquire about its history. This massive Yeti can be easily seen on the drive to Anza-Borrego on Motezuma-Borrego Highway. History After a […]

Borrego Springs Sculptures 4

Galleta Meadows Metal Sculptures in Borrego Springs

Only in California can a State Park be overrun with massive metal sculptures in the name of art. I am not even beginning to complain though as the Galleta Meadows Sculptures in Anza-Borrego are some of my favorite things to take new adventurers to. There are over 130 and as you are driving around they […]

Wildflowers in Anza Borrego: Where to Find Them

After having such a fun time last year visiting the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve I set out to see if I could find wildflowers in Anza-Borrego. Many reports online had said they were blooming and so I asked on the California Through My Lens Facebook Page and reader Sunni told me to visit Henderson Valley. I […]
