Big Sur Hike: Garrapata

Happy Friday, everyone!
I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend (and the short work week up ahead!)

The weatherman's predicting rain in San Francisco this weekend, so I might spend my time staring at pretty photos like these taken a few weekends ago in Big Sur!

I spent the weekend in Monterey with my parents a while back, and Saturday afternoon we hiked Garrapata's {super steep} Rocky Ridge.

This blue critter caught my eye:

Starting to notice the elevation--we can barely see the cars down on Highway 1.

Up and up...

We made it to the top!  The afternoon lighting was beautiful.

This view is looking north, and you can see the Lodge at Pebble Beach off in the distance at the low point in that ridge.

These photos don't do this hike justice.  Garrapata is incredible.


  1. Wow. Those photos are eyepopping. Hard to do Big Sur "justice" in photos, but those come as close as possible. WONDERFUL memories. RtT

  2. "The afternoon lighting was beautiful" is now the background on my office computer.


  3. Wish I could have joined - don't think I've ever done that hike.
