Public Lands: A slice of California

Outside Mammoth

The beauty of public lands rests in the sense of acceptance and belonging you feel when you enter them. You do not have to ask someone’s permission to be there or feel like you have invaded someone’s property or space. Visiting them is being home no matter which state you happen to be in. They enable you to be free in your own country and to feel your existence is hampered by no one and nothing. Public land means freedom to breath, to roam, to play, to escape, to see, to enter, and to exist – alone or in community. From snowy peaks to desert floors: a taste of California.
