This is the year of our being outdoors! Yes, even more than usual.
We had to be in San Francisco for a conference we attend annually and some business meetings. Trying to attach nature to all of our travel this year, we deliberated how we could include a big dose of the great outdoors in this journey to California.
But first, San Francisco – a city we love – needed to be conquered.
The decision of where to head to next actually didn't take long to come to the surface. We pretty quickly decided that Big Sur would be the perfect place for us to get our nature on.
While we've been through Big Sur before, we've never spent a significant amount of time there. We planted ourselves just south of Carmel and hiked, trail ran, and ate ourselves into a state of travel nirvana.
No place that we've traveled to has captured our hearts like the place(s) we call home. However, there are a few destinations that come close. This slice of the world is, without a doubt, one of them.
Next up here on NVR... more podcasting goodness and writing about our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park – the last "Top 10" NP on our list.
2016 is treating us well, and we hope the same is true for you.
