I like: Sunrises, going east out of King City California, in the cool early morning air, headed to Pinnacles National Park.
I like hiking: Gorgeous early morning hike at Pinnacles, all alone (my mom's foot is broken) without any other people. The solitude and beauty of this hike were wonderful. And it went through a bunch of caves!!!
I like: Asilomar. In spite of being right on the packed monterey coast, it feels isolated and beautiful. The experience of being there is like camp, but for grownups with real beds and wine. I don't like sandy beaches but I love tide pools (anemone!), and there is the best path through the dunes along the beach there. Love.
