I found out that I couldn't take the dogs into the Point Lobos park. I had to park outside on the highway and hike back in and take the trails around the entire perimeter with my painting gear (seemed around 100 miles, HA!). I had not brought my smaller easel with me (I put it in the camper immediately when I returned home), so I was carrying my larger easel and back pack.
I saw some of the most incredible ocean scenes and the trees were out of this world. This was a spot at China Cove in the afternoon.
