As you coast along Highway 1 through Big Sur, pull over and take the overlook trail below to see this waterfall that drops into the aqua-colored sea. Just make sure you take this trip during the day in clear conditions. It is NOT fun driving along this road at night or when there’s thick fog all along the coast.

    • It’s a really unique site but a bit sad to only look at it from a distance. Based on the GORGEOUS photos we’ve seen, it was a ‘dinky’ IRL 😛 Still pretty though!

  1. How beautiful! Your posts make this southeasterner want to spend more time out west. I’ve only been to Las Vegas (twice), The Grand Canyon, Death Valley, and Denver.

    • Driving along the coast is amazing, especially the areas south of the bay starting at Santa Cruz. The colors are amazing with deep blue waters and green trees lining the roadway.

  2. I love Hwy 1. It’s been years since I’ve driven it, but I think about it all the time. Someday I will go back and drive it again.
