Episode 9: Riding the Cliffs of Big Sur
It’s a wonder we didn’t fall off. That the car didn’t take a turn, distracted by a flying Condor, and begin its descent into the great ocean abyss. The Pacific Highway is just as the name says… more ocean than land, seemingly separated by steep cliffs crashing down hundreds of feet into the sea. But after awhile the road will turn and it will become comfortable- a gorgeous meadow, a row of redwoods, or the wide expanse of a beach with an infinite fishing pier will come to view.
The drama of the elements bode well for the imaginations of Amazing Capes. It's the natural playground of superheroes, full of jaw breaking intensity and natural wonder. We evaded the mountain lions on a hike out to sea, paraded waving floral meadows, stormed driftwood castles and flew to the beat of the sea outside our doors. On your next drive, may the wind be at your back and may a cape help steer the way to adventure.
AC Truth 9: By Jack Kerouac, Big Sur: “On soft Spring nights I'll stand in the yard under the stars - Something good will come out of all things yet - And it will be golden and eternal just like that - There's no need to say another word."
