Big Sur incredible stop on the Pacific highwayW
On the way from San Francisco to San Diego, by the Pacific highway road, I stop the car at Big Sur, to take photographs and films sequences. It is a splendid place. the sea is incredibly blue.
Big Sur refers to a portion of the California coast, west of the United States. This section extends about 140 km from the town of Carmel in the north and San Simeon. It was created by the collision of the Pacific Coast Ranges, specifically the Santa Lucia Range with the plate of the Pacific Ocean. Big Sur’s landscapes are made up of cliffs that seem to fall steeply into the ocean, often lost in the fog.
Cone Peak is the highest coastal mountain in the United States outside of Alaska and Hawaii. This summit is 1 600 meters above sea level and is just 4.8 kilometers from the ocean. The moisture allows the development of forests, which are not necessarily found inland. The end north of Big Sur is about 200 miles south of San Francisco, and the southern end is approximately 400 miles north of Los Angeles.
My recommendation though is that you don’t just come for the waterfall. There are some great trails you can take. Some provide great views of the ocean. Other trails are mainly in the forrest, and just as exquisite and peaceful.
