Driving through the mountains of California, you twist and turn among endless valleys and clear blue skies.
There is something about the darkness of the night juxtaposed with the beauty and brightness of the stars in the sky that gets me every time.
Driving along the Pacific Coast Highway is without a doubt my greatest place of peace.
