The Greatest Meeting of Land and Water
I love visiting our National and State Parks, they’re little natural gem’s preserved throughout the state of California and all over the United States. (I visited the worlds giants last month.) I mentioned earlier this week that we frequent Carmel by the Sea but this is the first time we visited Point Lobos. I know… I’m ashamed to admit it. But this time we drove into the state park and explored, as you can see I wasn’t prepared for how cold it was. I brought out a big sweater that I planned on sleeping in so sorry if I look less than fabulous =).
Point Lobos has some of the most gorgeous hiking trails that I’ve seen in my travels. The majestic trees tower over you while you hear the ocean waves crashing in the distance. Many of these trails follow the shoreline and lead to hidden coves. As we walked along the trails we saw lots of deer prancing around the woods, as you can see from the photos above. I also did a Vine video of them running – I suggest taking a look because it’s very cute! (If you’re on vine make sure to follow me, just look up Stylishlyme)
Other wildlife include seals, sea lions and sea otters, but we missed seeing whales.
Landscape artist Francis McComa’s bold but justified claim for Point Lobos remains unchallenged. All who come here agree that the beauty of this tree-clad headland is unequaled. Walk gently. Breathe deeply. Reflect. Discover its spirit for yourself.
Point Lobos is a must visit. Nestled on the south end of Carmel right off the famous California Hwy 1. Have you ever been to Point Lobos?
