#GoAltaCA | A lot of travelers will have already experienced the pleasures of California’s big four destinations -- Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento and San Diego -- but the state is so varied and diverse that there is plenty of adventure to be found in breaking out to the smaller towns that dot the Golden State. From the redwoods of the Pacific Coast to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, California is full of unexpected, hidden towns rife with individuality. But where to go first?
This stunning view at the Rock of Ages granite quarry (Graniteville, VT) took our breath away! Founded in 1885 in Vermont, Rock of Ages owns and manages quarries in several states and countries. These quarries produce the highest combined volume of dimensional granite in North America. This amazing location (nearly 600′ deep!) immediately reminded us of a movie set. And as it turns out, a scene from the 2009 Star Trek movie was in fact filmed here!
Glass Beach is a beach in MacKerricher State Park near Fort Bragg, California that is abundant in sea glass created from years of dumping garbage into an area of coastline near the northern part of the town.
The Narrows, Texas. Upper south side of Lake Travis near the community of Spicewood. From Austin take Texas 71, turn north on Spur 191, and proceed approximately one mile to Spicewood. Continue traveling north 1.1 miles on Burnet County Road 410 to CR 411, which is a gravel road. Proceed approximately 1.5 miles north to the entrance for the Narrows Recreation Area.
