Driving through Big Sur was by far my favorite day of our trip! We got on the road pretty early and headed from Carmel towards Santa Barbara. Our first major stop was the Bixby Bridge before a quick hike through Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. It was hard not to stop every few minutes to take pictures and enjoy the stunning scenery.
I was really happy we were able to see McWay Falls from the road! Julia Pfeiffer State Park is currently closed but next time I would love to hike through that park as well. I would even love to spend a few nights in Big Sur camping, sometimes one week just isn’t enough! Next stop, Santa Barbara!
