Brunch at the museum

Brunch at the museum

The Museum of Contemporary Art has a really good restaurant run by Wolfgang Puck. Now... Wolfie is rarely there to cook himself, but definitely don't miss their Sunday brunch since the buffet is excellent and you get a really good value!

Probably one of the most useless things... a fire hose shooting off water over the Chicago River... but it really gets all these people so excited!

Lighthouse in the night

Lighthouse in the night

I definitely froze while taking this picture. After about half an hour of snapping photos and counting seconds in the cold winds lashing my face, I stopped after this shot. The exposure took over two minutes and it is pretty noisy, but this is as good as it gets.

Cabrillo Hwy

Cabrillo Hwy

Landscapes along the Cabrillo Hwy sometimes seem pretty desolate, but views towards the Pacific Ocean are always spectacular!

Drive SF to LA along Hwy 1!

Big Sur Coastline

Big Sur Coastline

Driving down the Pacific Coast of California south of Big Sur is one of the most memorable things you can do!
