Big Sur

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Big Sur is a very special place that is sure to fill your sense of wonder. Driving south on Highway 1 from Pfeiffer State Park (where we spent the night camping)has some of the most jaw dropping views of the coastline. I kept hearing all about the hair raising twists and turns but after traveling on the Apache Trail it did not even compare.

Sunset at Pfeiffer Beach

Monday, December 7, 2015

After we (and when I say we I mean Jer) set up camp we jumped back into our car and raced to see the sunset at Pfeiffer Beach. One of the many great things about this trip is that we did not miss one sunset. With every single sunrise we missed we made up for with viewing some of the most amazing sunsets to date.  

Camping Big Sur

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Camping is not one of those things I normally get excited about. When I told family and friends we were going camping they immediately thought it was Jer's idea. Little did they know, on our last camping trip, he was the one that tried to fake sickness so we could leave early. True story.

I have been wanting to visit Big Sur for so long and since we now live on the west coast decided it was time for a visit. Researching hotels and lodges just seemed wrong to me in a place that is known for their outdoor scenery and parks. So I checked with my supposed "boy scout" and it was decided we would give it another go. He assured me that as long as we were in the woods he would be happy (first time was in an RV park and he could not sleep with all the noise).
