... This is most definitely a drive that everyone should do if they ever get the chance, the views are stunning. Some time after we'd stopped pulling in to every vista point, we spotted one that we simply can't ignore, "Elephant Seal Vista Point", too good to miss.

Therefore I booked an Amtrak train - which I'm not complaining about because there's so much space and they are cleaner etc etc - but it was leaving from Union Station. I've already spoken about how big LA is and taxis cost a mint. So decided to catch the bus. ...
