Sunset in Big Sur, California
The Story of "Big Sur"
After 3 years and 50 states, my final US road trip was come to a close. The last drive on the itinerary was Highway 1 on my way home... there is something to be said for saving the best for last.
During my years on the road, I had discovered a lot of things about myself and the world. I had discovered a joy for photography, which would one day become my passion, and an obsession with sunsets and nature and landscapes, which would also one day become something greater.
But for now, I was enjoying my final days of true liberation. My only possessions were in the back of an old station wagon named Penny and for the first time, I knew what it felt like to be truly free.
This was my final sunset, and what a gift it was.
I miss and cherish those old, simple days.
