Highway 1

We drove through Highway 1 on our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. On the way we stopped at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and slept in San Luis Obispo.

The night sky from this road, right before San Luis Obispo, was simply amazing. We just parked the car and stared at the sky for some time. Unfortunately the camera battery was dead, so no photos available.

Last but not least

We visited Warner Studios, Page Museum – La Brea Tar Pits and the Griffith Observatory on the last days of the vacation.

One of the photos below has in the background a famous couch.
