Hiking in Carmel

Most Expensive Places in California for Living?

Is there a list of these somewhere?  I know Carmel is expensive… so is Atherton… and I can think of a handful of other places, but I wonder if there was an official list somewhere… that would be interesting!

Daily Photo – Hiking in Carmel

Just south of Carmel-by-the-Sea is a hiking trail that goes along the coast.  I went down at sunrise one morning to see what I could find.  The entrance to the trail was blocked by a gate, and there was no ranger in the little box-place where rangers stand.  I was bamboozled.  There was no way through or around.  I could have walked, but it looked like the road went on quite a ways before the parking lot.

So I waited until some other guy came along to let himself in.  I was parked a ways back, and so I got his attention from afar by grunting and raising my Nikon-on-tripod over my head like a sand raider — he got the message and waved me through.

    Wow – so beautiful – love that green water – well for So Cal – you know 90210 or Malibu – but Mill Valley is pretty cool too!

    I think this little piece of heaven is Point Lobos National Park. One of my favorite places out of Monterey to shoot. Watch out for the poison oak in spring and summer though! Great shot!

    Trey, you’ve found Point Lobos State park.  It is truly an incredibly beautiful area with wonderful trails.  I go there whenever we take an RV trip to the Big Sur coast.  Love your photo with the green water – no saturation needed!

    I was there a year ago. 6 moths later, I discovered HDR.  You know, I HAVE to go back.  Glad you found it.  Seems like every step along the edges of this park offer multiple opportunities.  Hope you have a lot more.

    Nice shot Trey. I really love the colors in this. I used to live in California and I miss the coast, so this is nice to see. My wife and I love living here in Colorado with the mountains outside our door. We’ve always said if the ocean was near by then this would be heaven on earth.

    Check out this list of most expensive California ZIP codes. Number #1 is the small community of Bradbury which is about 12 east of Pasadena. That little town consists of huge estates and equestrian ranches on multi-acre lots. Not many people even know about this place and that just how the residents prefer it.http://www.californiality.com/2011/01/most-expensive-ca-zip-codes-2011.html

    Awesome pictures! I started learning HDR with your tutorials, and I’m starting to get the hang of it :)
    My pictures are still lightyears away from yours, but one has to start somewhere.
    I have my gallery here: http://shouter.galleria.fi/
    There is a blog, but it’s all in finnish. There aren’t many HDR-pics yet, only “normal” ones..
