One of the most beautiful trips I've ever taken was a drive down Highway 1, from San Francisco to San Diego, back in September 1990. Along the way I found this giant rock sticking out of the coast somewhere south of San Francisco and north of Big Sur. A reader of this blog, "Changa Peluda", was kind enough to correctly identify it as Morro Rock and the setting as Morro Bay, California. The entire coast there is absolutely gorgeous. On this trip there was fog all the way down.
