Just another evening at Kirk Creek in Big Sur. Sunset magazine calls this site, on a bluff off Highway 1, the prettiest campsite in California. For car camping, I’d have to agree. The irony is that the five of the best sites are reserved for hikers and bikers, but if these sort of brave souls haven’t arrived by sundown, the camp host opens the area to car campers willing to hoof it for a few feet. In which case they can find themselves in a spectacularly beautiful campsite with, it seems, no one around. And sunsets like this one…

Wow, that is some photo. It’s hard to take a pic of the ocean at sunset that doesn’t fall into cliche mode, but you’ve certainly done it.
Thanks! Now I wish I’d used a higher quality setting…one of these days I’m going to have to learn to use my camera properly.
Please don’t try to learn anything with your camera, Kit.
That photo is perfect.
