Saturdays in Big Sur

We spent the past two Saturdays in Big Sur. There’s little I love more than waking up early in the morning, packing sandwiches, and heading straight toward Highway 1. Nothing compares to the smell of the ocean in the air, the large rolling hills that frame the coastline, and Pfeiffer Beach’s perfect, purple-swirled sand. It’s all so intoxicating. I want to take you there.

This video was made to give you a little taste of Pfeiffer Beach and McWay Falls, two of my favorite sights in Big Sur.

Have a watch, and then let me know, what are your favorite road trip destinations?
