Big Sur

Carved between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the magic of the ‘Big Sur’ stretches just 90 miles long and 20 miles wide and is flanked on the east by the Santa Lucia Mountains. Just offshore is the largest submarine canyon in North America, where a rich upwelling from the deep nourishes shallow kelp forests.

At the shoreline, rocks are mobbed with many species of seals and sea lions. Two miles inland, coastal redwoods offer sanctuary to cougars, California condors and several unusual and rarely seen creatures. East of the tall trees, Big Sur stretches into meadows and oak woodlands where coyotes and hawks compete with rattlesnakes for small prey. Nowhere else in the world does such a wide variety of extreme habitats exist in such close proximity to one another.
