I'm planning to drive from SF to LA on the last leg of a trip to the US. I've been reading up on the sights along the Pacific Coast Highway and I'm frankly overwhelmed by the number of things to see!
I was hoping you guys could give me a photographer's guide to the must-sees - I'm thinking of driving out of SF on a Friday morning in late July, going through Monterey/Carmel, Point Lobos and the Big Sur, finishing up in LA on Sunfay afternoon. However, I'd like to make the most of the sunrises and sunsets along the way and am prepared to do some minor hiking to get to a good vantage point.
Would really appreciate any suggestions, I'm trying to decide which hotels to book along the way (all seem really expensive as it's summer!) to hit the highlights.
