20 Incredible Photos of My Big Sur Adventure

When my best friend Rachel asked me to go to Big Sur for a weekend of hiking and relaxing, I couldn’t say no – even if I am 7 months pregnant! I’ve heard so much about the picturesque views of Big Sur and the incredible nature walks and hikes.

I narrowed down my 200+ photos from our Big Sur weekend adventure to just 20 to share with you. These photos are from 4 different hikes: Pfeiffer Falls & Valley View Trails, McWay Waterfall Trail, Limekiln Trails and the Ewoldsen Trail.

No filter or camera could capture the beauty of Big Sur. I wish these had the accompanying sounds of water flowing through the creeks, birds creeping and the crisp fresh air.

Enjoy my photo diary of my Big Sur (Pregnancy) Adventure! I hope you get to visit one day soon.

Xo,
Raquel

Taken right before we tried to conquer the Ewoldsen Trail. 3 miles into it, we had to turn back because I was pooped!

The Edwoldsen Trail was the most challenging. That's a nervous smile as I try to balance on logs to cross creeks
