Rock Climbing was a blast, but we had to move on to see other new sights! We drove out to Big Sur on New Year's Eve. We were supposed to be camping, but while driving along the Coastal highway, we noticed a huge black cloud coming inland from the ocean. How could we miss that? It was enormous! So, we decided we better take a raincheck on the camping, and find a cabin. We were lucky to find one! This state park was packed for the holidays!
New Year's Eve, we tried to stay up to midnight, but we are light weights. We entertained ourselves with Scrabble and cookies and milk for awhile, but it just didn't work. We were pased out pretty early:)
The next day, we began to explor. Big Sur was beautiful. Look at the Redwoods we were in! There were also palm trees, evergreens, rocky cliffs, sandy beaches. It was amazing. We hiked to an overlook to check out McWay Falls. We then continued to drive and spotted a California Condor! They were near to extinction a few years back, but they bred them like crazy to keep them alive. They have wing spans of 12 feet! Sorry they don't look that big in the picture:)
Oops! I gotta run. I'll continue this later!
