With aspirations of making 2017 twice as badass as 2016, we started the year off proper with a trek up the Pacific Coast Highway to check out some of the unbridled beauty Northern California has to offer.
Slightly shy of an hour north of San Luis Obispo, Elephant Seal Vista Point in San Simeon plays host to thousands of elephant seals doing what elephant seals do.
We stocked up with some G Beanies to keep our noggins warm as we marveled at the 2+ ton beasts.
Through curvy roads, sequoias & fog, we arrived in California's oldest state park, Big Basin Redwoods. Primed with our Phil Frost X Burton G Pen Elite, we hiked the East Ridge Trail along Blooms Creek.
Our Phil Frost X Burton Tinder Backpack blended in nicely in the deep forest, a perfect rucksack to keep our Elite & camera gear sheltered.
The Park covers 18,000 acres ranging from sea level to more than 2,000 feet elevation.
Evidence of California's winter storms affecting the whole state. Redwood debris over Blooms Creek.
Nothing tops of a beautiful hike like a gorgeous cruise through Big Sur.
Stay tuned for more adventures this year as we continue taking G Pen worldwide.
