Big Sur, April 2008

In April of 2008, we camped at a very pleasant RV Park and campground in Big Sur, among the redwoods. Our first outing was a mountain bike ride to Andrew Molera State Park. During the winter and spring months, there is no bridge over the Big Sur River, so I had to carry the bikes across:

But the absence of a bridge kept the crowds down. We first rode out to the coast:

We then took a very challenging ridge trail, climbing almost 2000 feet:

On another day, we hiked up into the hills above the coastline. The cliffs were lined with flowers:

The views from Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park were lovely:

I couldn't resist this cliché shot of McWay Falls:
