I was down in Big Sur this afternoon hoping to shoot some seascapes. It was incredibly clear here in the Sun Belt as the valley between Salinas and Monterey is called by the locals. By the time I got to Carmel it was pea soup fog. Sheesh.

I chased the sun south to Molero State Park just above the opening to the Big Sur Valley where I finally got some breaks in the mist. I went up on the hills overlooking Molero and Pt. Sur. This is the "old coast road" which was the wagon trail used before Route 1 was built during the 1930s. It is a rutted disaster but a lot of fun. Ranches line either side of the road and beef cattle were all over the road as I drove up the mountain.

Apparently this fence was not all that effective at keeping the cows in.
