This is the last of 4 sets from a quick one week jaunt to California earlier this year. After exploring the Giant Forests of Sequoia National Park, the secluded beauty of Kings Canyon, and the classic vistas of Yosemite, we headed West, hitting the ocean at San Francisco hoping to catch a glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge. Unfortunately, fog, cloud, and drizzle rendered the visibility to near zero, which unfortunately would be the weather pattern for much of our drive south to LA along the Pacific Coast Highway. I've driven this stretch of road before, and many of the views of the beautiful coastline were simply not visible in the fog. A bummer for sure, but we tried to make the best of it! As usual, comments and criticism are certainly welcome! 1. Eating the last of our peaches for breakfast in a motel in Santa Cruz: 2. 3. We were reminded of the amount of food California produces ... 4. ... and more importantly, that human beings are involved in the process. 5. 6. A large motorcycle sculpture next to a biker leather shop: 7. The next few are from a big pottery shop: 8. The man behind the lens 9. 10. 11. Vicious? 12. Fresh seafood anyone? 13. Monterey 14. Final days of summer break 15. Point Lobos State Reserve: 16. 17. The fog cleared for a moment 18. One of the many bridges along the way: 19. 20. Unfortunate private property 21. Camping in style 22. 23. Elephant seal 24. 25. 26.
