By the Sea
Here’s one of the many greats place to stop along Highway One. I had a cold during this whole trip, but every time I looked out at the crashing waves of the Pacific, I felt restored, as if I weren’t sick at all.
Yet another impressive view from Highway One, which practically makes driving a spiritual experience (at least for the passengers. I’d prefer the driver to just pay attention to the speed limit).
Cultural Heart and Soul of Big Sur
Noted American author and expatriate Henry Miller made his home in Big Sur in 1944 after a long stint in Paris. I had to check out this small memorial nestled among the redwoods off Highway One.
An Invitation to Nap
After visiting Big Sur, we went to Pinnacles State Park, a massive piece of land with ancient volcanoes. I took a nap under that tree!
Nature Makes a Statement at Pinnacles State Park
An impressive rock formation at Pinnacles State Park.
Pinnacles offered many more impressive views. My buddy surreptitiously snapped this photo of me scratching my back.
A Quiet Pause
I made my friends stop our hike for a quiet pause.
