I’ve had the good fortune and opportunity to make one of the most beautiful drives in the country two times—the first was about seven years ago, but I didn’t have a camera with me. The second time was just a few days ago, and this time I made sure to bring some gear to get a handful of photos of along the way.
The drive I’m talking about is along California’s Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) traveling north from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The 14 photos here were taken on the 165 mile stretch of coastline between Morro Bay and Santa Cruz on May 10, 2012.
I would encourage everyone to make it a point to do a similar drive at some point in their life. Just look at a map for HWY 1 between San Francisco and Morro Bay, plan for a full day, prepare yourself to make a lot of stops, and hit the road!
