A Scenic Drive Down California's Hwy 1 from Carmel to San Luis Obispo
The long and winding road along California Hwy 1 from Monterey/Carmel to the north to San Luis Obispo lies along the rocky coast of the Pacific Ocean. While it is slow going, the view is worth the time. While I haven't yet seen the coast in Oregon and Washington, this is one of most favorite places. I did the drive in October 2006, and for once I was hoping for mist and fog - but even on a sunny day it was spectacular. My only regret was that my photos doesn't do this 100+ mile stretch of coastline, its hills and rocky coastline justice. I found it humorous that their were designated "view points" along the way - when the entire trip it was difficult to keep my eyes on the road and not the beautiful and rugged surroundings.
