On April 28th, 2014, I embarked on my month-long transcontinental journey from North Carolina all the way to California.
As a passionate traveler, I hiked in national parks including the Grand Canyon, the Yellowstone,the Yosemite and the Sequoia.
As a "water" lover, I explored the major water bodies in the west including the Great Salt Lake, Lake Tahoe, Lake Mead and Mono Lake. I also took a four-day adventure driving along the California State Route 1 from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
As a wildlife enthusiast, I searched the mountainsides, lakesides and woods; and spotted grizzly bears, black bears, grey wolfs, american bisons, elks，bighorn sheep, bald eagles. I also enjoyed my up-close encounter with stunning sea mammals along the California coastlines.
I documented every joyful moment, every spectacular scene, and every stunning wildlife I encourter during my trip in this photobook.
