Around the Pacific Coast Highway

January 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

After visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon, we headed west to Salinas, which would be our base of operations for a couple days. We arrived in Salinas in time to go to Point Lobos for sunset. With no clouds to speak of, it wasn't going to be a great sunset, but as you can see, we did get some nice colors. And can there be a bad sunset on the coast?

The next morning we drove the Pacific Coast Highway from south of Monterey down to McWay Falls. Unfortunately for us, there was fog clinging to the coastline much of the way down to McWay Falls. Still, it made for some interesting photography that you can see in the gallery, here.

On our way back to our hotel, we stopped at one of the newest national monuments, Fort Ord National Monument, created in 2012. The monument, a US Army facility from 1917 - 1994 covering over 14,000 acres, remains undeveloped but provides 86 miles of trails, some of which we hiked while we were there for the afternoon.
