When driving in California, this trip is a MUST! It's a very scenic drive with lots of pull outs to park and enjoy the view. Early morning driving in June was foggy but along the way some sun bursts offer very good opportunities for taking breathtaking photos!

Even foggy photos from the scenic drive look like paintings when I printed them!

To drive the 90 Miles Big Sur Coastline is to perch in the heavens and let your heart soar. It's just incredible to see the Mighty Pacific from up so high. I drove my two teenagers and they were really blown away by the West Coast and California Highway 1, in particular. You'll love it!!

The drive is beautiful! There are pull offs to get those pretty pictures. Some people try to scare you but just drive for the conditions. We drove daytime pulling a 34 for rv, no problems except not as easy for us to pull over at all pull offs. We still got some great views heading north. Don't forget Elephant Seal rock. A MUST!

The front gallery is nice. The back gallery is filled with overstock and worthless stuff that will end up in garage sales by next spring.

And, how unfriendly that they have a sign that says "Public Bathrooms are 5 mile north, or south." I didn't have to use one, but c'mon...did they have to put that up? I hope they realize that most of their visitors are traveling up or down the coast along HWY1.

Besides, the gallery across from nepenthe has nicer things. You can probably drive past this one and you wouldn't miss anything.
