Start Here

Welcome to CaliforniaThroughMyLens.com! My name is Josh, and I am honored that you would take the time to explore California with me, my wife and my bulldog. My reason for creating this site is to spotlight all of the fantastic adventures California has to offer and to encourage people visiting to make the most of their trip and those that live here to take more time to explore our amazing state.

I have been running this site for over six years, and I know it can be pretty overwhelming to get through the 1,100 posts on the site. Let me help you to get to know the site by showing you some of the best content and giving you some resources to engage with.
