We wind our way along the Pacific Coast Highway and the magnificent Big Sur with its breathtaking beauty. Now on to Monterey, Santa Cruz and our weekend destination---San Francisco. Next was Sacramento, Mammoth Lakes, beautiful Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park. Now on to Fresno, Costa Mesa and back to Los Angeles. 1648 miles and 18 glorious days.
