In California, you can travel between both the lowest and highest points in the continental U.S.—Death Valley and Mt. Whitney—in less than a day. Visitors can also see the world's largest known tree (General Sherman Tree in Sequoia National Park), or the tallest, a coastal redwood named Hyperion. In addition, you can check out one of the oldest living things in the world: a Mojave Desert creosote bush, estimated to be 11,700 years of age, along with the eastern Sierras' Bristlecone pines which are 4,600 years old.
As of 2019, the Golden State is the most populous in the U.S., housing almost 40 million residents (more than Canada)—and it's a "minority majority" state, with 58% of its population Asian, Hispanic, Native American, or other groups. According to the U.S. Census Bureau's findings in 2014–2018, 27% of the people in California were born outside the country. Three out of the 10 largest U.S. cities are here: Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Jose.
