return to big sur

Okay, so most of the hiking trails were still closed. Sure, we camped next to a blackened hillside. And no, no one was walking inadvertantly through a spider web as they were all highly visible covered in ash.

Still... we needed to see that this was still there.
24 hours after they re-opened the parks, our tent was up and ready for action. The campground was full - mostly locals who grabbed up the canceled sites which had likely been reserved for months before the fire broke out, folks, like us, who just needed to be there again.

I know the feeling of "just having to be there". I'm glad you got there to see for yourself that all is not lost.
