Hiking Big Sur

Saturday, I stopped in at River Inn and met a nice young man named Brian Mack, who is a follower of this blog. He introduced me to some of his videos on youtube. He has quite a few, and the majority of them are all about hiking the back country from Tassajara to Sykes Hot Springs or other Big Sur locales.

Besides being beautiful and extremely well done, they are informative and let people know how to find certain places, where to find water, and what the conditions are on these hikes. He has a great one of a helicopter trip up the coast from San Simeon. What a vantage point!

Here is a link to one of his videos: Brian Mack videos from there you can explore whichever videos you wish. Thanks, Brian. It was great meeting you!

BTW, this past weekend through Tuesday brought quite a bit of rain. Big Sur Valley saw over 2 inches, and one area in Los Burros Mining District reported almost three inches. I know coming down Plaskett on Wednesday I was more sideways than any other direction most of the way towards the bottom. It was not fun.

DON’T FORGET THE BIG BIG BIG SUR FASHION SHOW TONIGHT AT HML, AND THE BSVFB MUSTER AT THE STATE PARK ON SATURDAY FROM NOON TO THREE!

  1. What a fabulous way to start my day, thanks Kate. I watched 2 of the Brian Mack hikes and as you say, wonderful adventuring in our backyard. They’re beautifully done little vignettes, felt like I was there. I lived in Cachagua and was told how directly it connected to Big Sur, you could see Big Sur from several hilltops in Carmel Valley, now I’ve finally done the trek…on film.

  2. Wow, I love Big Sur but haven’t been there in years. I think I’ll schedule a day trip out there for later next month. Thanks for reminding me what I’ve been missing! Great videos too.
