Images of California


California photos copyrighted by: Brian McMorrow

California's history is so romantic and filled with legend that it is fitting that the region was named for a fictional island peopled by pagan Amazons.The name "California" came from a knightly romance book that was published in 1510 California's climates are as varied as her physical regions. There are heavy snows in the high mountain ranges, mild and temperate conditions along the coast. California has four main regions. The temperate coastal region, the Central Valley, once an inland sea, the desert, and the mountain region. The imposing Sierra Nevadas caused California to develop in relative isolation from the rest of the nation.
