The Big Sur segment of the Pacific Coast Highway offers a glimpse of what makes this stretch of shore so special. Drive alongside shorelines of granite rather than pale sand, redwood forests, sudden sea cliffs and canyons. Swing by the Monterey County byway for something a little more cultivated - a patchwork quilt of farmers' fields.
