Pacific Coast Highway

Last week Dylan and I made a trip to San Francisco and LA. I love San Francisco and remain undecided about LA, but by far the highlight of the trip was the beautiful stretch of highway between the two. It was a last minute decision to rent a car and do the famous PCH ourselves, and I'm so so glad we did. Because the drive was sandwiched between two work meetings in either city, we had to rush through - but we're already planning to go again.

Taking in the scenery

The first redwoods I've ever seen! In Pfeiffer State Park

We stopped in at the Big Sur Lodge after our redwood forest hike to get a smashed penny for my ever-expanding collection.

Sunset near San Simeon

We managed to make time for the Hearst Castle - this was Hearst's study.

The amazing indoor Roman Pool at Hearst Castle.

Elephant Seal Rookery!

Look at all those lazy seals!
