We then drove to the ranger station for a couple mile hike through the woods. A lot drier than Limekiln, the climate was very similar to south-west Oz. You could still taste the earth on your tongue and smell the vitality of plantlife in the atmosphere. We were also lucky enough to see three deer only a few metres away.

Wildlife day

... Our goal was to make it to Big Sur and we even made it past, but the last part of the afternoon we spent immersed in fog. The road was windy and all bridges looked the same. We could hear the ocean down the cliffs, the screaming of the sealions, but we did not see anything. Quite spooky. After googling pictures of the coastline we were quite gutted, but so be it.

... to keep more hikers at bay as I passed a lot fewer people than on the previous trail. At the top of the mountain, I glanced out to the sparkling ocean.

    Stayed here for one night, was a really friendly and helpful welcome. The rooms are to a high standard and really good value for money. They even provided a free buffet meal in the evening provided you bought one drink. This was also very nice. Would recommend staying here
