Like a golden key, the soft rays at sunset along the central California coast passed through the sea arch formed by this monolith to illuminate waves and spray.
Big Sur is a sparsely populated region of the Central Coast of California where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean, providing grand vistas along the coastline. Big Sur's relative isolation and natural beauty attracts writers and artists, however Big Sur remains sparsely populated. The mountainous terrain, environmental restrictions imposed, and lack of property available for development have kept Big Sur relatively unspoiled. The section of Highway 1 running through Big Sur is widely considered as one of the most scenic driving routes in the United States, if not the world. Numerous state parks and public lands are found in Big Sur, including Carmel River State Beach, Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, Garrapata State Park, Point Sur State Historic Park, Andrew Molera State Park, Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, John Little State Natural Reserve, Limekiln State Park.
