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. 

A California Spring, 2012

The Spring in California isn't something we earn by living through a cold hard winter. Even at its worst the weather is mild, sometimes sunny and hot, sometimes wet. Then one day  you notice the magnolias are blooming, the pruned rose bushes are sprouting or that forget-me-nots have seeded all over the gravel in the  garden. It can begin in December (truly not the time for Spring) but by late March the wisteria has joined the parade and we're all beginning to complain about our allergies!
