Central Coast + 10 Road Trip Reminders

Central Coast + 10 Road Trip Reminders

Unbelievable pictures taken from Highway 1 between Monterey and Ventura.

Highway 1

It was 5am on a foggy Wednesday morning when I hopped in my car with a Yeti mug filled to the brim with Major Dickinson's roast, a Pete's favorite. I didn't get much sleep the night before, I never do really, especially when I have a big trip the next day. I was patiently waiting, all week, to start my 12 hour drive from San Francisco to LA. A place I used to call home, just one year ago. 

Primarily focused on capturing the Central Coast, I stopped ten times, just off the highway, at my favorite spots along the way. There are a few recognizable spots, such as Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Avila Beach, but the others were just stops along Highway 1. This drive is a must, and definitely worth the extra time. You won't be able to take your eyes off the coast, and with a little kick of caffeine you're in for a great drive.
