"Prepare to be blown away." Big Sur by tvdandy

The Best road in the world.

Big Sur is the most beautiful and scenic roadway, (Highway 1) on the West Coast. Every turn there is another breathtaking ocean view of waves crashing against giant cliffs. Word to the wise, the Big Sur road winds side to side and you have to drive slowly, so be aware if you easily get car sick. The town of Big Sur consists of only several lodges and stores with a very bohemim flair to them. People who live here definately have a hippy mentality, which I love. This area is gorgeous and soulful.

Trees a bound

There are many beautiful trees and plant life peaking through the cliffs on the Big Sur rd. Too many opportunites to stop the car and shoot a pic to count.

The seals start the quest

Heading North after you pass San Simeon. There is a great turnoff point right before you get to the winding roads of Big Sur called Seal Rock. This is a great place to watch the seals play and splash and sun on the rocks. Great photo ops.
