The California Cruise

_DSF2452

I remember it was a Wednesday night, and I was bored out of my mind. I had this urge to really go out, do something, and be somewhere. I wanted to see California. Thursday night came, and I found myself packing my things. I looked at maps deciding where I wanted to go and what I wanted to see. I had decided on traveling north of San Francisco on Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1). I didn’t really know where to stop and I knew I could drive on for days, but I only had 2 days off work. I planned to stop at Salt Point State Park which is north of Jenner.

I left on Friday at noon, but the one mistake that I made and didn’t realize was that it was Labor day weekend. People were getting out and going camping. Realizing this, I decided to stop short at Stillwater Cove Regional park and ended up getting the last lot at the campsite. Once I made camp, I went out for a hike and drove around to look for some views. Here are the highlights of my trip:

This little adventure along the north coast of California was what I needed. There’s so much out there to be discovered and seen. I’ve come across some of the most amazing and inspirational people along the way. I will never forget this journey and what it’s taught me. Perhaps one day, I’ll compile my photos of my future road trips along highway 1 into a book. There’s so much more to see out there.

    Yup, we seem to have left for our road trips around the same time! I left town the day before you did. Nice shots man. If you ever get more time off, make sure you keep driving north. The Northern California and Oregon coastlines are crazy beautiful.
