California Coasting

If you live in California (or just visiting) and haven't driven through to Big Sur or Carmel, clear your weekend, fill your tank and go!  Spring is the best season to enjoy the breath-taking views, fully bloomed poppies and cool ocean air. Here are a view images from my road trip. With stops in Carmel, Big Sur and Esalen Institue.
