Monterey & Big Sur (7/3/2014) - Part 2

I recently took a trip from the SF Bay Area traveling south along the coast visiting Monterey and Big Sur, CA. The photos I took on this trip will be split into 2 parts. Photos will include Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur, CA and will include places such as Bixby Creek Bridge and Pfeiffer Beach.

The photos for today are from Carmel, Big Sur, and Monterey including photos from Pfeiffer Beach and Bixby Creek Bridge.

Here is a photo of the Bixby Creek Bridge. Technically this bridge is in Carmel, CA, but my GPS coordinates told me it was Monterey (at least on Google Maps), so I will just say it is in Monterey then. :)

Here is a more zoomed out shot of the Bixby Creek Bridge. This bridge is pretty famous and is visited by a lot of people. Just take note if you are going to come to places like this, after you leave the main part of Carmel, CA there is pretty much no more cellphone signal. If you need to talk or text anyone, do that before you enter. :) 

 Another photo of the Bixby Creek Bridge shot at a slightly different angle with the Pacific Ocean in the shot. 

 Here is a panorama of the view of Bixby Creek Bridge and the Pacific Ocean from the area. I tried my best to frame the people out of my photos. 


 Here is a photo of the Bixby Creek Bridge shot right next to it.

Crossed the bridge and decided to take a photo facing back toward the bridge.

A few photos of the sunset scenery at California's coastline on the side of SR-1. The island you see is a Point Sur Historic Park. I would have headed there, but I thought it was the Point Sur Naval Facility until I checked Google Maps. The naval facility is next to this. Next time I'll go there for photos. :) I still think this is located in Carmel, CA but Google Maps insists this is Monterey, so I'll say this is Monterey.
