    Big Sur is a place we visit, at least, once a year.

    Big Sur is a place we visit, at least, once a year. There are so many wonderful places to stop and hike. This was my first time going to Point Lobos. It is now my favorite place in Big Sur. I entered the park a few minutes after 8am for my daily run. Luckily, there were very few people, so I could navigate the trails easily. I have never seen such beauty. So much wildlife in the park. Two hours in the park went by so fast. I will definitely be back.

    Unexpected real pleasure and recommend not to be missed.

    Unexpected real pleasure and recommend not to be missed. Give yourself a couple of hours even if you are there to 'look'. Great short walks give some wonderful panorama's of the coast both north and south.
