Other California? It's been a little while since I've posted on the subject, so here's what it is: an exploration of the lesser known places of our beautiful state, the places that you don't find on the postcards all that often; the places you visit when you've checked off that list of must-see spots like Yosemite or Death Valley. In today's post, we are taking a look at an interesting little beach in the southern part of the Big Sur Coast country: Limekiln State Park.
It's easy to miss while winding down the highway; focus too much on getting to the famous parks at the north end of Highway 1, and you might not see the turnoff at all. There is barely any parking available, so the beach is uncrowded. It's different from a lot of beaches in California; it has a good-sized creek that has littered the beach with large boulders of very attractive metamorphic and plutonic rocks. Does anyone see a face in the cliff?
