59 S Main St, Moab, UT 84532, USA

Loved this little cafe as we passed through Moab- the food was incredibly fresh. I'm not typically a breakfast burrito kinda gal but this one was absolutely delicious. Nice strong coffee and sweet local ambiance. Worth a drop in for sure!
Save Place
Moab, UT 84532, USA
I was in Moab Utah, hiking Arches National Park in July. The desert landscape was foreign to me; the heat was not. After a particularly grueling 4 hour hike, I recall letting my mind wander to desserts as I trudged along through the sand and rock....

29450 Valley of Fire Hwy, Overton, NV 89040, USA

Valley of Fire is the oldest state park in Nevada, and a great place to see 3,000-year-old Indian petroglyphs and explore the red sandstone formations created during the age of the dinosaurs. Bring your camera to photograph the landscape while...

Happy Isles, Yosemite Valley, CA 95389, USA
Despite being steep, often wet, and sometimes dangerous, the Mist Trail is Yosemite’s hallmark hike, with breathtaking views of the valley and two waterfalls. Be warned, though, that it’s called the Mist Trail for a reason: Much of the...
Save Place
Tenaya Lake, California, USA
Tenaya is not only one of the most beautiful lakes in Yosemite, it’s one of the most accessible—when Tioga Road (the only road in the high country) is open, usually May through October. The fact that it’s easy to get to makes it...
Save Place
Mirror Lake, California, USA
I remember every year as a little girl taking annual camping trips during the summer to Yosemite National Park, CA. We would walk the trail up to Mirror Lake and have picnics. So as a mom, I wanted to share these fond memories with my children....
Save Place
33160 Evergreen Rd, Groveland, CA 95321, USA
While shooting a wedding here a while back, I fell in love with this place. Evergreen Lodge is a group of cabins, nestled in the redwoods only minutes from Yosemite and the Hetch Hetchy. You can book cozy or roomy family-sized cabins. It is rustic...
Save Place
52801 California State Route 1, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
After five hours in the car, I was more than happy to hop out and hike the 1.4 miles out to Pfeiffer Burns State Park and get the prize of a beautiful waterfall. The water's color is an unreal sea blue/green that I have never seen before. The best...
Save Place
Big Sur’s winding roads, plunging cliffs and canyon-spanning bridges may cause nausea but they provide some of the most striking scenery in the country. After miles of lush green forests and sapphire blue oceans, the palm trees and turquoise...

The Big Sur Bakery and Restaurant serves housemade granola, ginger scones, and seasonal fruit strudels in a cabin built in 1937. Wood-fired pizzas, with toppings such as squash and prosciutto, stand out on the dinner menu, and the blackberry...

71895 CA-1, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
For such a remote region, Big Sur has more than its share of amazing places to stay. One of the most unique is Treebones Resort, nestled high in the foothills of South Big Sur overlooking the Pacific. The off-the-grid property offers 16 signature...

48510 Highway One, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
$$$$

Though I had read a lot about Nepenthe, as it is a "must-see" if you are in the Big Sur area, I still wasn't prepared for just how beautiful the views were. We were planning on setting up camp and then coming back the few miles to eat dinner at...

Save Place
45500 CA-1, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
One of my favorite campgrounds in Big Sur is the big open meadow at Andrew Molera State Park. It's great for large groups and it's one of the best bases for hiking and surfing in the area. More than 20 miles of trails run throughout the park's...
Save Place
Pfeiffer Big Sur Rd, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
Sykes Hot Springs is a jewel in Big Sur country. Despite what the signs say it is a good 13-14 mile hike out to the springs up and down over 1000 feet of elevation. But the struggle is well worth it. There are three tubs of varying, yet...

Big Sur lies along what is surely one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in California, if not the world.Skip the famously fabulous and outrageously expensive hotels, and head to Deetjen's. It's a ramshackle but romantic historic inn on...

46800 California 1, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
The best way to sit amid the Redwoods while watching your worries wash away is to grab a seat in the middle of the river. This inn isn't fancy, as it doesn't want to compete with natural beauty.
Save Place
It was a terrifying drive to the top but the views were so worth it. Camping on a small peninsula overlook in Big Sur after a day of hiking through Redwoods and hanging out at the cliffed beaches that line the California Coast was the highlight of...

Drakes Bay, California, USA
A lot of people are aware of Hog Island in Tomales Bay, but just a few minutes down the road is Drake's Bay which also offers fresh oysters on the cheap. It may not have as many tables and areas to eat, but it also doesn't have the crowds and you...

12781 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Inverness, CA 94937, USA
This is a great addition to Tomales Bay (one of my most beloved areas just an hour north of San Francisco). Owner Luc Chamberland raises his own shellfish at his Pickleweed Point Community Shellfish Farm nearby. Local fishermen are encouraged to...

CA-1, Bodega Bay, CA 94923, USA
After a day of wine tasting and hiking in Sonoma, take the long way back to San Francisco via Route 1 on the Sonoma Coast. Stop for fresh oysters at one of the indoor/outdoor restaurants along Tomales Bay.
