This is starting to be a recurring theme around here ... but I'm posting a Random Shot of Beauty just before heading out to enjoy another fantastic day. This was taken last weekend:
Rugged geocachers high above Soberanes Point, 6 miles south of Carmel at the northern edge of Big Sur. Our family has made a few similar outings lately, in preparation for a short vacation coming up in the spring. I'll discuss this more over the next few weeks, especially in regards to our family's interest in geocaching, and the gear (footwear and otherwise) that's available for kids for activities like this.
In the meantime, here's the view from the same spot looking south:
See that little strip of road way down there by the point? It's mile 20 of the Big Sur Marathon course. And as much as I love that race, on days like this there's no doubt in my mind that the view is way better from the top.
