Thread: "The Flow" Highway 1 at dawn.

  1. #1

    "The Flow" Highway 1 at dawn.

    Highway 1 between Carmel and Cambria is perhaps the greatest coast road in the world, seemingly engineered for no other purpose than to thrill and delight an enthusiastic driver, but most of the time it is cluttered with people intent on going thirty while rubbernecking the ocean.

    The crack of dawn on a summer Sunday is the spirited driver's only answer as there is literally no traffic on the road at all. Driving it is like being a surfer riding an endless wave. Seventy miles of cavorting curves clinging to the cliffs just begs to be enjoyed properly, so enjoy it we did, melting into an intoxicatingly brisk and uninterrupted flow.

    The Ultimate Driving Machine on the ultimate road.

    So the next time we do Hunter Ligget, we should do it backwards, and start at 6am to avoid the traffic on 1?

    Lunch? We were in Ojai at 11.30am for brunch!

    The trip was a glorious 917 miles of motoring nirvana from start to finish, all of it awesome, but getting Highway 1 to ourselves was a stunning end to a superb weekend.
