Pfeiffer

Pfeiffer State Beach is both popular and little known, because the Big Sur drive is so incredibly beautiful that few people bother to take the short detour to simply Be in this enchanted place. Even on this “busy” perfect warm weekend day the dozen or two people here could walk a few steps and find complete solitude.

The sands, rocks, and waters all conspire to transform the mood of those who take this road less traveled.

Nearby is the more remote Cooper Point with its inexplicable slotted stone pointing to an alien world so familiar to explorers who sample its secrets.

Trails abound in this region seeming so far from the noise and bustle of the highway, yet only a short hike into a Pacific consciousness.

At the base of this trail through salty flowering heather whispers the soul of solitude at the feet of Pfeiffer Ridge. From our magic carpet perspective, patient mountains anchor our awareness. Washing our sandy feet again in waves of Summer memory.
