Overview of Carmel and Point Lobos

It’s almost always hiking weather in Monterey, California. There’s a nice park there called Jack’s Peak that you reach by driving up a small mountain. The views from the park are magnificent. You have to walk through the forest to get to various vistas, but you get almost a 360 degree view of the surrounding lands: Monterey Bay, Salinas, Carmel Valley, and Carmel towards the Pacific Ocean.

This shot is looking southeast, over Carmel and towards Point Lobos, another beautiful hiking spot. It’s maybe a 5.5 mile distance as the crow flies (using this handy tool, because I’m terrible at distances). Everything is close by in the Monterey area.

Seeing this really makes me want to go back. We were only there for nine months. Enough to capture a little piece of my heart.

Into the Woods

Point Lobos is a great hike if you’re ever on the PCH and need to stretch your legs. So many different types of scenery – including fairy tale woods. The Wicked Witch or the Evil Queen or Maleficent is just behind the next bend. . .

It’s really very peaceful and calming in person. Nothing scary about it unless you’re afraid of heights and hundred foot drops.
