Pacific Coast Road (highway one)

The Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1) is well known as one of the most scenic drives in the world. State Route 1 is a major north-south state highway that runs along most of the Pacific coastline of the U.S. state of California. At a total of just over 655.8 miles, it is the longest state route in California. I started my journey at the northernmost point by driving through the customary Chandelier Drive Thru Tree in the town of Leggett. The drive continues down the coast through Bodega Bay, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, Pismo Beach, Santa Barbara, Malibu, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Laguna Beach and San Diego. The coastline is beautifully rugged and the town’s and beaches are stunning? In the mornings the route would be overcast and misty, come midday though the sun would burn through the cloud leaving me with memories I will never forget…

    • It goes to show how wide at the base the red wood tree grows. The red wood trees are beautiful. There used to be a Sequoia tree at Yosemite park you could drive through which was far bigger than this tree but unfortunately it fell down In 1969.

    I’m guessing that you have a good Sat Nav, watching your dashcam footage there don’t seem to be many signposts with directions!
    It looks like the most amazing trip you’re having, thanks for sharing it with us xx

    • I use my phone as the sat nav and video recorder, although sat nav stops when your recording however you don’t really need a sat nav at all for highway one except when I had a 240 mile detour due to a land slide at Big Sur which you had to go around. The video doesn’t do the coast justice. What I could see the camera didn’t due to it being sat lower and not able to see over the road barriers. Shame about the footage but I will have ever lasting memories 👍😀
