Thursday morning we headed north towards Monterey. Just an hour after we left Palm Springs we started encountering LA traffic. And….that traffic continued for the next four hours as we wove our way through downtown LA, past Hollywood and on to Oxnard. Sometimes going slow through LA isn’t bad as there are lots of sights to see!
|The Road Ahead|
Big Sur is about 90 miles of rocks, trees, surf and twisting roads. It seems as though every mile has yet another breath-taking view. Mona drove the entire stretch so I could take pictures….and I couldn’t take enough! I couldn’t tell you how many times we pulled over to check out the views. We’d pull over, hop out, and do our “ooos” and “ahhhhs” and then hop back in and continue north. It takes a long time to drive this highway just because of all the stops.
|Not everything is pretty on Big Sur!|
One bit of advice for anyone taking this route: Fill up your tank before you get on Highway 1.
Finally, the wild and fun ride had to end and we pulled into Monterey. Can’t wait for tomorrow!
