Pacific Coast Highway Road Trip

Posted on Jun 25, 2013

We took this trip 6 months ago and I’m just now revisiting all the photos. Oh, how I miss it there. Ben and I have both visited CA in the past, but there is nothing like seeing it on the road.  Especially the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway.  After spending a couple days in San Francisco, we begin the slow trek down Highway 1 pulling over constantly. There is hardy an inch of this highway that isn’t breathtaking. We gave ourselves three days to make our way from SF to LA but we could have easily stretched the trip out over the span of a couple weeks and never gotten bored.  We hiked, explored, ate yummy food, saw 100’s of elephant seals,  and even had our first “glamping” experience in a little tent bungalow complete with a queen size heated bed (Costanoa Lodge).  This stunningly diverse state was made for road trips and this is one I’ll never forget!  Thanks to may sweet husband for taking me here for my 30th birthday. :)
