To welcome March — which is supposed to come in like a lion and leave like a lamb, remember? — we've rounded up 10 trip-worthy California creatures to inspire you. And most of them are real.
Any one of the critters here could play a starring role in your next weekend journey, as long as the season is right. Writers Catharine Hamm, Sara Lessley, Elisa Parhad and I came across them while researching the L.A. Times California Bucket List, and you'll find plenty of details below on the when, where, how and how much of it all.
