After a great evening wandering the beach at Morro Bay, we woke up early(ish) and started heading back up the coast. The stretch of Route 1 and 101 north of Morro Bay was without a doubt one of the most breath taking drives of my life. I wanted to stop just about every ten minutes. There was so much to see. It was impossible to take it all in.
The fog continued to amaze me and I stopped to take photos of some cows grazing in a field before we even made it onto the highway.
Lots of random stops along the coast to take in a views.
In the weeks before the trip I tried to imagine what I would enjoy more, the desert which I had been through twice already, or the coast which I had never seen. I didn't know exactly what to expect. I had seen photos and heard people describe the Pacific Coast but it was so much more than I had imagined. Easily one of my favorite parts of this trip.
