    California State Song
    I love you, California, you're the greatest state
    of all
    I love you in the winter, summer, spring, and in the
    fall.
    I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I
    adore,
    I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.

    cried, "Eureka!" during the most famous gold rush of modern times in
    1849. It is now the state motto. California is known as the "Golden
    State" because of the gold found there, its golden poppy flowers, and
    brilliant sunshine. Spanish explorers named the state in the 1500's
    after a treasure island in a famous Spanish story. The abbreviation for
    California is CA.
    "Eureka!" hasn't been the only thing shouted by surprised
    Californians. Cries of "Earthquake!" and "Fire!" were heard in San
    Francisco on April 18, 1906. An earthquake in the city was one of the
    worst disasters in United States history. The quake resulted in fires
    that burned for three days. At least 3,000 people died, most of the city
    was destroyed, and there was over $500 million in damage. Some
    scientists fear that another catastrophic earthquake will occur along
    California's San Andreas Fault in the future.

    CALIFORNIA California_c_coliseumCalifornia
    is the most populous state and still growing. It is also the third
    largest; only Alaska and Texas surpass it. A Pacific state, California
    is bordered by Oregon to the north, Nevada and Arizona to the east,
    Mexico to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
    In California, tourists can see a varied and beautiful
    landscapes that includes mountains, valleys, and waterfalls. The state
    shares the Sierra Nevada, a mountain range named after the highest
    mountain range in Spain, with the state of Nevada. One can also see
    Mount Whitney, the highest mountain peak in the United States outside of
    Alaska. And in Redwood National Park, one can see the world's tallest
    tree, at about 370 feet.
    In addition to its places of great heights, California
    also shares Death Valley, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere,
    with Nevada. Be careful if you visit; temperatures can reach a deadly
    134 degrees F. Besides Death Valley, California also contains Salinas
    Valley, John Steinbeck's childhood home, and the inspiration for much in
    his novels, especially the plight of poor farm workers. And one can
    also experience see spectacular waterfalls, fantastic rock formations,
    and huge sequoias at Yosemite National Park.

    also ride a cable car, visit Fisherman's Warf, sway in the wind on the
    Golden Gate Bridge, or just enjoy the view from one of San Francisco's
    43 hills. If tourists are looking for excitement they can surf in the
    Pacific Ocean or go on the rides at Disneyland. Criminal historians can
    see where the country's worst criminals were imprisoned at Alcatraz. And
    for all the star watchers, there is always Los
