I'll be travelling to sunny so cal for work over the next week and will have some time off to pursue my passion for photography. Anyone ever been up the PCH (Highway 101) in California? I would like to drive from Thousand Oaks (just outside LA) up to San Fran. taking in some places like Monterey, Half Moon Bay and some of the Napa, Sonoma wine country. If anyone has any suggestions along this route that are scenic I would appreciate your input.

Thanks

Sorry CP,

If I would have been here a couple months back. I live in Los Angeles and travel up and down PCH all the time. There is so much to take in, it can take years to see just some of the scenes. If you get back this way again, please let me know and I could suggest a few places close to the area you would be in. BTW- Thousand Oaks has some nice scenery too!

I go to various places. I have relatives in a town very near Delphi. The scenery on the way there is fantastic. I also have relatives in Volos (a city 4 hours north of Athens) - there is a mountain there called Pelion - it's so beautiful! Lush and green in some places, hard to believe one is in Greece where the landscape is often so dry and arrid. I try going to an island or two - besides Santorini, there is Paros, Naxos, Mykonos (the wild party place but also has lovely beaches - nudist too for those who are into that), Skiathos, Skopelos etc etc.. each one has its own charm and beauty but there is one thing that characterises almost all the islands: white churches with blue domes everywhere!! And also white-washed houses and bright flowers everywhere.
There is a lot of natural beauty also on the mainland though. Further north, where Halkidiki is and near Mount Athos where no women are allowed! I've only been as close as 500 meters from the coast. Any closer is strictly verboten!!

I wouldn't say plenty of time with the holiday this weekend. I don't think one week would be enough to handle you and Minerva...LOL.

Are you trying to get rid of her??

I was in CA back in 1988 and had a great time. It was beautiful. Stayed in LA but visited Santa Barbara - took a few drives along the coast - would love to go back.
CP - lucky you, going there soon. Photography is my big passion too. Bet you'll take some great pics.
Have fun!
