Big Sur

For the first few days of spring break, a group of friends and I headed to Big Sur's Limekiln State Park for some camping and hiking. Our campsite was just a few steps away from the beach (hence the numerous photos at various times of the day) and a half mile hike from two waterfalls. 

On the first day, we hiked two half mile hikes by our campsite and even attempted to do a night hike which got too creepy too fast. We opted out and agreed that s'mores by the campfire sounded more pleasant. The next day, we drove a few miles down to hike Cone Peak. What was supposed to be a 5 mile hike turned into a 17 mile hike due to road closures. We eventually got to the top to a breathtaking view of the mountains and ocean. Exhausted, we went back to our campsite to cook dinner and once again, ended the night with s'mores. Up until this camping trip, I haven't gone for a few years and this short getaway reignited my love for camping. I actually feel like I have camping withdrawals and can't wait for this school year to end so I can go again. To the desert next!
