We went to Big Sur for my birthday a couple weeks ago and it was so FREAKING BEAUTIFUL.
Pro tip for anyone looking to get their hike on here - the Tanbark Trail is dope, and will afford you one of the only places in town with cell reception (at the top of a mountain), but it will take about 3.5-4 hours and you will need to walk along the outskirts of Hwy-1 to get back to your car. But it’s peaceful, we only crossed paths with one other couple hiking, and the views are astounding. Just don’t be stupid like me, and go into it thinking it will only be a two hour hike.
Went to Big Sur recently. As you can see it’s a PRETTY DEPRESSING AND AWFUL-LOOKING PLACE.
