California is one of the most biologically diverse states in America. We’ve got deserts, both below sea level and at altitude. Forests parched in valleys and on mountain tops covered in snow. Rich, loamy mountainsides, covered in redwoods and ferns. As far as fauna is concerned, there’s enough critters out there to make anyone’s ride interesting. In Los Angeles, we’ve got a few notable species that I wanted to highlight in the newest Trail Friends package: the California king snake, the Coulter pinecone, and California sagebrush.
