New Years Day 2009.

First day of 2009. Camped on a high ridge overlooking much of the Big Sur coast, the Ventana and Silver Peak Wildernesses, the massive Fort Hunter Liggett Military Reserve, and the San Antonio River Valley. See the truck?

Alder Peak with the Pacific Ocean on the left and the Salinas valley on the right.

The drive along South Coast Ridge Road is right up there on my list of best drives in the world.

The coast of Big Sur was fairly crowded, being the New Years holiday weekend. Just a half hour from Highway 1 and there are no tourists to be found anywhere. Just us. We found a good spot.

The view.
