Another morning on the PCH as we head north to Sebastapol for the weekend. Last night when we parked for the night a little ways south from this spot we could faintly hear the ocean but had no idea how close we were. The night was so utterly dark from the new moon and there was dense fog. It wasn’t until a couple hours after sunrise and the fog started burning off that we saw we could see the ocean just a little ways down the slope from where we were parked. It was eery how still the water was. We snapped this shot after driving a few miles north toward Stinson Beach.
Those 20 something miles off road led us here. The Solis campground in Big Bend National Park. The band of green you see above Falkor are the plants lining the mighty Rio Grande. And above them the Chihuahuan Desert continues south into Mexico.
