In 2010 I decided to go for a weekend road trip to SanFrancisco. So on one Friday morning my friend and I hit the road. I t was the longest drive I ever did. We have decided to take Highway 1 through Big Sur. Really beautiful road with such an amazing views. I think that everyone should take that ride at least once in their lifetime. Next month my husband will experience this for the first time. I know he will love it. Since we went in June the weather was very foggy which you will see in my pictures.
One of the stops we took on our way was Bixby Creek Bridge. It is considered as the most famous and most beautiful among all the Big Sur’s bridges and it is one of the most photographed features on the West Coast. Bixby Bridge located in Monterey County was opened in 1932. It is an reinforced concrete open-spandrel arch bridge. Its total length is 714 feet (218 m), and it is 280 feet (85 m) high. That is impressive.
We also stopped by the Rocky Creek Bridge.
Don’t look down if you are afraid of heights!
It took us about 12 hours to get from San Diego to San Francisco. We were exhausted at the end of the day.
Next day we explored San Francisco by car. It was much fun.
This Orthodox Church got my attention right away.
This photo below is definitely one of my favorites.
Of course I couldn’t miss seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. This is what I saw. Oh, foggy days.
But night view on the bridge was just perfect.
What would you like to see in San Francisco?
We are getting ready for our next road trip and we will definitely spend one day in SF so do you have any recommendations what to see? where to go?
