Since I’ve moved to California I’ve always wanted to drive up the coast and explore. Finally after living in La for 2yrs I took the trip. While most of my friends were enjoying Black Friday, I was driving up the coast of California. It was actually raining in LA that morning, but by the time we reached Big Sur the weather was perfect. The ocean, cliffs and terrain were all overwhelming, the images below are only a fraction of the beauty we saw. The next morning we drove to 3.5hrs to Yosemite and because of a later start and day light savings time we only were able to see a small part of the park. But the little we did see was breathtaking. The plan was to spend the night at a city near the park, but at the last minute I needed to be in Atlanta Monday morning, so we grabbed dinner in a small town outside of Yosemite and headed back to LA.
