One of the best ways to go from Monterey to Los Angeles is for the coast called Big Sur, this part of 140 kms it is amazing with some cliffs and curvy roads ,wonderful to enjoy stopping in the places to see the landscape and the colour of the sea, actually when I went it was August, there was some fires around, how can be induced for people? I was also surprised when I realised there where some posters encouraging and congratulating the firefighters.
This town is located at 37 kms of Kingman taking the Us 93 and then Hwy 125, it is a nice place where they kept the essence of the 60´s. I had a traditional pump cake in the bar of the village, actually it almost inhabited very nice place for the photographers.
This village is located in San Francisco bay, it takes half an hour aproxemetely from San Francisco, I took a boat that the cost was 40 $ aproxemetely, and I spend some time waiting if I could see the sea lions. Actually it was worth it, I could see some.
