Milepost 60 to Big Sur

The short story about today is that it was GREAT! Totally beautiful. The road was narrow and winding, and it was remote – but we had lots of tourist ‘company’ and traffic was light.

Good shoulder (mostly), but it was noisy and not very relaxing. Spotlights This Week: Always: Hope Chapel Missions Charity Spotlight: Focus on…
