So, iahflyr is always raving about Monterey (and the Monterey Marriott), but I don't remember his riffing on Pacific Coast Highway (or California State Route 1). As noted below, that was my error - apparently I just missed his prior posts....

 

Between the coast and the bridges, and the various scenic overlooks (or convenient spots to pull over), it's a wonder folks actually get anywhere, avoid collisions with oncoming vehicles, or don't simply drive off the road.

 

Sadly, the park and the walking trail down to McWay Falls was closed (due to fire risk).  Julia Pfeiffer Burns SP

But there was still plenty of eye candy ... well ... everywhere...

Not sure I'll have time to post a full gallery/album, but ... wow...

 

My recollection was that pluto77 did some running out in that direction, but, other than that...  As, as noted below, pluto77 has spent times in the park itself.... Ah, jealous...

 

In any event, some miles slowly traveled, but sincerely enjoyed....  And a couple of additional photos.....
