Between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the Pacific Coast Highway there exists a spectacular stretch of California. Ninety miles of rugged terrain line the western edge of the U.S. The Pacific Ocean crashes against the Santa Lucia Mountains in grand style at a place named Big Sur. Native Americans populated the area more than a thousand years ago. They harvested food from the sea and appreciated spiritual surroundings. Not only is the scenery breathtaking but its presence is felt on such a large scale that one can’t help acknowledge that a higher power had something to do with its design. Go here and drive the coast. Stop at the pull offs and take pictures. Breath in the salt air, and feel the laid back atmosphere of the west coast.
