California, Things we like

Big Sur


Stopped in Pfeiffer National Park, Big Sur and got the chance to try our Sea to Summit gear. We have been sleeping in their sleeping bags in the car and just love them, but this time we got the chance to try out their Specialist duo tent, a tent that folds as big as a small pet bottle. Looking at it from the outside Petter had his doubts if it would fits us both, but when we got in in we were amazed over how spacious it felt and Petter who’s 190 cm fitted with out any problems. Once back out on highway one we met Stan, an extraordinary bird/wildlife guide who knew Big Sur like the inside of his pocket and showed us a very rare bird; the Californian condor. A amazing bird with almost 3 meters wing span, not many years ago there were only 22 wild condors left. The biologists has made a great job fighting for them and we were lucky to se 14 of them.

Look closely at this last image. Compare the bird to the cars just below it. When one of them cruzed over the road the it looked pretty much as wide as the whole road! That’s how big they are.
