Twilight over Big Sur at Post Ranch

I woke up before sunrise (as I did every morning–to my surprise–on this trip) and went out on the balcony to experience the best views of the mountains.  Then I took a magical walk to see all the unique cabins and the changing colors of the sky over the sea.  Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Waking up before sunrise and enjoying the sunsets every day in Big Sur was a recipe for four beautiful days.  Overlooking the mountains just off my cabin balcony and peering out over the sea just across the footpath made for sunrise in the best of both worlds, one in which I aspire to live full time some day.
