Road Trip On Route 1 - Big Sur Coast Highway

Winter is a nice time to explore the California Coast. It was nothing but gorgeous views along the Route 1 drive,  We made plenty of stops at the scenic outlooks to capture all the beauty.

Big Sur is called "The Greatest Meeting Of  Land and Sea" !  Indeed! We started scenery drive from San Simeon,  a ninety mile stretch of scenic beauty! Visited  Hearst Castle, a beautiful castle set up on a hill. Those Elephant Seals are really cute...they are basking in the sun on the beach.

I enjoyed the Pfeiffer Beach, beautiful purple sands and rock arch.

Here are more photos taken along the road: Continuing north, we pass over the Bixby Creek Bridge. Stop at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park for McWay  waterfall...

It's a stream of water that falls from a creek onto the beach then into the ocean....

It's absolutely stunning.
Well, I will think 17 miles drive is the most beautiful part of our wonderful road tip on Pacific Coast Highway,  will follow a post soon, a post for all photos taken along the 17 miles scenic drive...
