Big Sur - Hiking Andrew Molera State Park

One of the great delights of living in the Bay Area is the proximity to the natural beauty of California and it's hard to beat the stunning drive down Highway One to Big Sur. This is certainly one of the iconic American road trips, but for me the joy of being in the area is getting out of your car and hitting a trail, so you can be "in" the landscape rather than just looking at it from the asphalt. 

Short Hike in Carmel Valley

With 500 acres abutting Garland Ranch Park, the Carmel Valley Ranch has a number of short paths and walking trails. In a bid to burn off breakfast we headed for a walk up to the scenic yoga platform. The landscape was very Californian, dry hills dotted with graceful mature oaks.


As you can see Tiber liked the yoga platform as much as I did! Apart from this quick walk and a leisurely stroll on the beach we had a very lazy stay. 

Not surprisingly it was no trouble for us to resist the full schedule of classes at the clubhouse, in favor of eating, relaxing and reading!

Ooohhh, Tiber in the 2nd photo! He looks all in - like he's about to hitch a lift!
