To Sur With Love

By Linda Tancs

Big Sur is a popular tourist destination in California, a coastline stretching along Highway 1 generally between San Simeon and Carmel.   The stunning vistas afforded by the Santa Lucia Mountains’ dominance over the Pacific Ocean and the rock formations at sunset on the beach are a shutterbug’s dream.  But don’t forget about the redwoods, conifers, oaks, sycamores, cottonwoods, maples, alders, meadows,  water ouzels and belted kingfishers in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, just 26 miles south of Carmel.  Open one half hour prior to sunrise until one half hour after sunset, this Central Coast treasure beckons hikers and campers.  There’s even a 61-room lodge with a conference center, Wi-Fi, cafe and grocery store.
