From his new home base, he traveled throughout the U.S. North to South and East to West and even went to Mexico. Painting his way across the western states, he finally arriving in California in 1873. His works from this trip included a series of Yosemite Valley paintings.

Because he was a prudent investor, Herzog did not need to rely upon on the sale of his artwork to live a comfortable lifestyle. Following his death, his family retained a large group of his paintings, most of which were released to the art market in the 1970s.
