“…Off the beaten path…”

"The outdoors allow me to get away from the hustle and bustle of California. There are a bunch of places off the beaten path to visit. You can go snowboarding in the morning and then surfing in the evening.  I have even been able to go gold panning and actually find some gold.  There are still things on my to-do list that I hope to cross off while I am in California."
