A trip down California’s Route 1

When I visited Carmel by the Sea for a friends wedding in May of 2011, I knew that a drive down Route 1 along the California Coast was going to be on my must do list. Since we flew into San Fran, we had to rent a car anyway for the wedding. We took advantage of this by driving down Route 1 to Big Sur before returning to Carmel.  The trip was easy and did not take anywhere near as long as I had feared. It’s eas to stop along the way to take pictures of the rocky cliffs and crashing waves that make up the majority of the scenery.
