The whole area was surrounded by cloud spotted mountains. Our next stop Inhotim, is a museum and botanical garden. The large park included dozens of paths, leading to outdoor sculptures, indoor exhibits, and beautiful plants. The exhibits included a variety of modern art displays, including sculptures, videos, and everything in between.
The rain poured down during our entire visit to the park, but everyone had a partner and an umbrella to attempt to remain dry. While on the path, one group spotted a very small orange and black snake, later confirmed to be poisonous. We got back into the van for another long drive, this time headed to the city of Tiradentes. In Tiradentes we stay in a beautiful lodge. The whole city had historic architecture, tiled roofs, and cobblestone roads.
Many of us walked 5km to a waterfall.

Malibu is one of the best known beach communities in the world. Malibu is one of the points connected by the Pacific Coast Highway see 17 below , and is a great place for cycling as well. The crown jewel of California's park system and one of the best national parks in the country is Yosemite National Park.
You can see the iconic Half Dome in the center of the photo above. Yosemite has a ton of outdoor activities, from hiking to climbing to downhill skiing. The park is also pretty accessible: It's a four-hour drive from the Bay Area, and just three from Sacramento. The range serves as the primary geographic barrier for the sprawl of urban Southern California, and as such, is easily accessible from both LA and San Diego.
A small town in the High Sierra, Mammoth has excellent access to hot springs and skiing. Yosemite is a minute drive away, and Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks are about five hours off by car you have to go down and around the mountains. Mount Whitney is only two hours distant. This strange rock formation is caused by a process called concretion and is incredibly rare. In addition to some awesome outdoor activities, Mendocino County is famous for its beer and wine production.
The beach itself is about a three-hour drive from the Bay Area. Redding sits in the Shasta Cascade region in the Sacramento Valley, and it's a sweet place to base a trip around Northern California's parks. It also has great biking. It's about three hours outside of Sacramento and is surrounded on three sides by national parks and forests. The picture above is of Brandy Creek Falls, just west of town. There are a myriad of hiking options through its scenic badlands. Less a single landscape and more an experience, the Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most scenic drives in the country.
