Big Sur Hiking/Camping

The BSIM has definitely kicked off a “Big Sur” chain of events for me now lately! After running the 26.2 miles from Big Sur back to Rio Rd in Carmel, the very next weekend I drove down with my friend Ephraim on the 6th of May to do some hiking all day long. We went to Pfeiffer Big Sur at first, then decided we actually wanted to be at Julia Pfeiffer Burns for the famous McWay Falls – one of the most scenic and well known sites in Big Sur! After hiking a bit there, feeding a bird (yes, it’s bad I know) and doing a trail lunch ourselves – we were off to a explore a beach, some sea caves, and Limekiln SP a little further south. See the photoalbum of pics.

Just last night, I spent my first night camping in Andrew Molera State Park… the unique part was this was a Wednesday night and I had class at 8:00am today! I saw it as a challenge and great opportunity, and couldn’t resist as I was taking my 2 French guests from the HospitalityClub down there anyways. We met a couple surfers heading south, camped out together and just had a good time. I packed up camp starting at 5:30am this morning, had a quick breakfast and saw off Eloi and Damien (who were probably going back to sleep)! I remembered to say “Au revoir” as I parted and wished them both luck hitchiking to LA and San Diego. Maybe I’ll meet them in France some day? That’s the beauty of the hospitality club!
