Last week we drove out to San Francisco and then down Highway 1 to Los Angeles. Kiana has been updating her blog with all of our adventures from the trip, so I figure I would keep my overview to the outdoorsy-ish pictures to keep with the theme of my blog. All of her blog posts can be found at twopepers.com.
The first stop we made on the drive out was at the Salt Flats in Utah. There is a rest stop along I-80 where you can park and venture out onto the salt. Don’t be like me and go out there barefoot. It is the most painful thing I can fathom. I don’t believe the flats are usually covered in water like they are here, but it has been raining in Utah more than usual the past month.
We spent a few days exploring San Francisco together, and it was a blast. One of my favorite parts of the trip we didn’t even plan on seeing. It was across the Golden Gate Bridge. There is a road that takes you to the Point Bonita Lighthouse. It was such a cool drive with awesome scenery. We had a great view of the city from there as well.
After San Francisco, we headed down the Pacific Coast Highway to Los Angeles! Easily the most beautiful part of the trip was along Big Sur. We definitely need to do some backpacking in that area in the near future.
It was definitely worth the 2,400 mile drive.
