It is no great surprise that sunny California is known as the "Golden State" be it from the gold rush, the golden poppies that bloom in spring, the golden grass that blanket many a field or the golden sunsets that end beautiful days along its abundant coast line. Regardless of its originating nomenclature the "Golden State" is undoubtedly and gloriously fitting.
California’s diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west, to the Sierra Mountains in the East – from the Redwood Douglas-Fir forests of the northwest, to the Mojave areas in the southeast. So although it is the most populous in the U.S. there is still a variety of natural wonder to behold in California and Xplorer Maps captures it all in this stunning and picturesque California State Map.
From the lows of death valley, to the coastline and all the wonders the sea beholds, to the peak of Mt. Whitney - the Xplorer Maps version of this iconic state captures the entirety of that 14,728 foot elevation change with nearly everything in between. From the Point Loma Lighthouse in the southwest to Mt. Shasta in the northeast, artist Chris Robitaille has done an exceptional job illustrating not only nature's bounty but also the man-made marvels that make the California State Map an exceptional artistic piece.
The California State Map is 18" wide x 24" tall
