Point Lobos State Natural Reserve at Sunset: Carmel, CA

A couple of weeks ago we had one of the most memorable days I’ve had since arriving in California. We spent the day investigating Monterey County. We toured the 17-Mile Drive and relaxed at our favorite beach spot in Carmel. As the sun set, we took a detour before heading home, and decided to drive a little further down Highway 101 to take in the ocean view from the road. On our GPS we spotted a few coves that we just couldn’t resist exploring and accidentally stumbled upon the most beautiful place I have ever visited: Point Lobos.

Its awe-inspiring rock formations greeted us with the sounds of sea lions and the sunset views were absolutely breathtaking. After doing a bit of research, I have since learned that Point Lobos was famously called “The greatest meeting of land and water in the world.” by artist Francis McComas, and that’s a title well-deserved. I fell in love with this bit of land as quickly as he did and can’t return to visit soon enough.
