I camped with three dudes in Big Sur. It was way out of my comfort zone and a grand adventure! We listened to the rain pour down all night, woke up to deer surrounding our (otherwise deserted) campsite, ran around the beach at dawn, ordered one of everything at Big Sur Bakery, explored a foggy redwood forest, and continued on our way up the coast.

  3. Gosh, how magical! I’m eager to explore more of the West Coast once I relocate. So many beautiful places (and baked goods) to see (eat).

  4. This is so beautiful! Love the portraits of the three dudes. Also will eat one of everything at Big Sur bakery, when I’ll go there in the future. Which will happen!

  20. Uuuugh, I love this part of California!! I grew up in southern CA, and although I did explore a lot of the central coast, I never actually made it to Big Sur, and only saw the redwoods when I was very young. I’m yearning to take a proper, two or three-week long road trip up there, I feel alive in that cool, misty air. These photos are incredibly beautiful.
