Fans of mountains won't be disappointed: the State of California has several ski resorts, such as the one in Mammoth Lakes and the fantastic Yosemite National Park, which offers ways of enjoying rock climbing, mountain climbing and hiking. Tahoe Lake is another "must" on your list if you want to fully discover Sierra Nevada. On horseback from California to Utah, spectacular landscape can be seen, from bright green forests to deep blue waters. Don't miss the chance to drive along the coast for a little while that is around 70 miles long.
