Day 257 Part 2—Thelma And Louise 2012 Day 9: Big Sur

I managed to get my wits about me today and I drove from Treebones north to the top of Big Sur and then down again, despite my fear of heights and cliffs. We drove most of the day and I didn’t drive us off a cliff. We drove in an out of thick fog banks and rarely saw the water today. We had lunch at Nepenthe, thanks to a friend who recommended it; the carrot ginger soup was delicious and the views from the restaurant are stunning. We stopped at a few other places along the way and pulled over often to enjoy the views and take photos. Here are a few of my favorite shots from Big Sur today.

And, one of the bridges that spans one of the gorges we crossed.
