“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” - Samuel Johnson
As any traveler who has experienced even just a segment of the Pacific Coast Highway, one knows the true magic of those long winding roads. I spent only one day driving from San Fransisco to Big Sur and back. I was hoping to continue further but there was a bridge out and I had to turn back. The encapsulating mist from the ocean, the cool forest floor within the Redwoods, each part of the highway constantly changing. This little day trip has inspired another trip that will involve a few weeks, a boy, and a dog.
