Snapshot Saturday: Bluer Than Blue

Road closed? With this view, I'd be more than happy to do a detour any day!

It's bluer than blue, and we're not sadder than sad to backtrack about 150 miles... because this gorgeous view unfolded before us whilst cruising along the Pacific Coast. How did we get here? We were on Highway 1 to San Francisco from Los Angeles and found out that part of it was closed when we passed Cambria. Our turning point, Ragged Point Inn in San Simeon, has a backdrop that will make you step on the brakes!

Isn't the views at Highway 1 spectacular? I usually take Interstate 5 to drive to SFO but when I am not in a hurry, I take Highway 1 and I often camped along the way just for the kick.

Spectacular indeed! Made me step out of the vehicle even if I was so cold, even if baby was so cold!

this brings back memories!
we've been on a roadtrip from LA to San Francisco and back via Fresno, Yosemite & Sequioia Parks. the view from santa monica, santa barbara, malibu, carmel & monterey were just remarkable!

Gasp! You went to Yosemite, Doc Gelo? So jealous! We didn't have the time, and we find the climate too cold for hiking :(

Bluer than blue. Unlike with the song, you will feel sad. But with this picture, you will feel so alive. Galing.....:-).

Is this the Big Sur? Its a wonderful drive in this stretch, so long as you're not the one driving. :) Cliffs and the crashing ocean are always a dramatic combo. I go for this more than a tranquil beach.

Pinay Travel Junkie said...

Unfortunately, we didn't reach the Big Sur. Past Ragged Point me thinks is the southernmost part of it.

I can attest to the beauty of this! my boyfriend is from san francisco and we just took a random road trip this may and drove through highway 1. too bad it was closed right after Big Sur. We ended up going all the way back to Carmel then drove to LA. it was definitely worth it though just to see the spectacular view!
