This weekend/week I embarked on a spontaneous solo winter camping adventure. I decided to camp down at Big Sur because I had driven through numerous times, but had never really stopped and hiked...
The first stop on any peninsular trip:
Best Burrito Ever
I followed dinner with a movie at the Nickelodeon:
Melancholia was beautiful, but perhaps not the best movie to watch immediately before sleeping alone in the cold woods.
South | North
I stopped for breakfast in Monterey:
Happy Girl Kitchen's persimmon oat scone!
Big Sur, for real:
Big Sur River, as it flows through Pfieffer Big Sur State Park:
I set off for a hike:
Oak Grove Trail
Big Sur Valley
Then I went to Pfeiffer Beach for sunset:
It was prettier than I expected.
Back at my campsite:
I made a fire!
Next day further south:
Back north at Andrew Molera State Park:
Birds collect at the mouth of the Big Sur River
