2010 U.S. Road Trip – Day 20 -
7/8/2010 – Carmel, CA

Got a late start this morning. We
didn't leave the campground until 12:00 noon. But we were well
rested. We continued our trip up the coast on route 1. Route 1 is
very scenic. We were on and off the coast. Route 1 did not run up
the entire coast as a continuous route. In the areas where route 1
didn't continue up the coast it was necessary to pick up route 101
until we reached an area where route 1 would continue up the coast.
Just north of Lompoc there were farming fields as far as the eye
could see. The fields were filled with strawberries and somewhere
nearby lettuce was being grown judging from the truck full of lettuce
that we saw turn into a packaging plant. On the coastal area of
route 1 the ocean could be seen from the cliffs of route 1. There
were also areas where route 1 dropped to the same elevation as the

The goal was to make it to Big Sur and
camp nearby. All campgrounds in and around Big Sur were full. So we
continued north on route 1 until we got to the next town. The next
town was Carmel that had several hotels and inns. We stayed at the
Carmel Inn & Suites. Very nice inn at a reasonable price.
