Day 140 – Travel Day to San Francisco

Day 140 of Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

With Highway 1 being closed down fifteen miles below Carmel, we had to turn south and leave Big Sur via Nacimiento-Fergusson Road.  The road is actually a stop in the Reader’s Digest book and is described as, “this paved 25-mile byway – a white knuckle side trip with hairpin curves and panoramic views – traverses the Santa Lucia Range and ends at an army base.”  It was very clear that landslides had recently been cleared from the area and the road, like Highway 1 has a few chunks missing from it.
