Hiking the 58

California is divided into 58 counties, some of which are heavily explored and others with terrains and populations one might not expect in a state famous for its beaches and crowds. I’ve driven through most of the counties in the Golden State, usually keeping to major highways which take me from one city to the next as I stop to visit family and friends. While I enjoy observing my surroundings from the safety of the driver’s seat, I have been wanting to adopt a slower pace and explore the natural side of my home state on foot. The project of hiking all 58 counties is a slow but steady goal, perfectly fitting for my little travel blog.
