Californium: Since the element is called Californium, I thought it was appropriate to draw California. From snowboarding in the mountains, hiking through the Redwood tree forests, river rafting down rivers, witnessing the best view of the Bay Area on the Golden Gate Bridge, enjoying the Napa Valley wine, being a kid again in Disneyland, spotting movie stars in Hollywood, and surfing on the beaches of Malibu, California is truly the most colourful place to live in. I am proud to call it my home and I think it is the perfect name for the element!
