half moon bay CA
As autumn brings cooler temperatures to California, the coastal chill can be sunny with a cool breeze or foggy with stillness falling over the landscape. Only the waves can be heard in the distance, crashing against the shore. Coast highway Hwy 1, north of the Big Sur Coast & south of San Francisco, the delightful seasie village of Half Moon Bay, CA offers recreation, quaint bed & breakfasts, small inns & plenty restaurants. Even a pumpkin patch! A perfect Weekend getaway destination for Central Cal & Bay Area residents.
california ghost towns
Never before has California seen a population boom like the one of 1849, when gold fever struck the nation & everyone & their brother was headed west. Several small towns never made it past the heyday of mining & can be found in the desert regions of eastern California. While Death Valley & Panamint Valley have some old mines to explore, there are also more abandon ghost towns north along the Eastern Sierra's Hwy 395. Check out the rich history & remnants of our state. Plenty of great reasons to use that SUV on the dirt roads.
