Where is bigsurkate?

I know it doesn’t look like I am as active as I usually am, but I have entered a phase on my Tourist Tuesdays that requires a more time and effort on my part – that, and a vacation to the desert, a funeral, illnesses, and appointments in Palo Alto have kept me busy.

I like where my Tourist Tuesdays is taking me, and I hope you are enjoying looking for a long-term solution for the “bigger picture” and not just the poo on the side of the road. We need to continue to work on specific issues like bathrooms, traffic, enforcement, etc. while we explore a new paradigm for sharing our coast with visitors.

  2. Thank you for your forward thinking-big picture thoughts. Tourist Tuesdays are a must read for me – looking for solutions, along with others who have a “beautiful spot on this planet where the whole world wants to go”.

  3. You’ve likely seen this already, but here’s another article dealing with increased tourism – this time Yosemite’s annual horestail fall photo opportunity (which of course, Big Sur has a cousin event in the sun setting through the hole in the rock every winter).

  4. Thank you Kate for the update, and for shifting the focus to solutions! Timh posted a link below re Yosemite that is so worth reading! Such an amazingly simple, sensible solution that can be used as a model here for Sycamore Canyon road perhaps? Along with a road improved to meet the County’s own minimum specifications ( Hello!!) and if their standards are so low then the States, gated access, toll road, bathrooms a la Carmel Beach at crucial waypoints on Highway 1. 2018 and it is time to demand action from our taxpayer funded entities!!
