The most southwestern state in the USA, California has a diverse ecosystem of deserts, mountains and seacoast.
The low desert is home to the Salton Sea and Death Valley, two of the lowest places in America, each hundreds of feet below sea level. The high desert, over 2000 feet above sea level, has unique vegetation like Joshua trees.
Ancient Native American petroglyphs can be found all across southern regions of California.
