I am proud to be born and raised a California girl. Don't you wish you were one too? When you take a car and drive Highway 1 up to Carmel, your mouth will drop open at the astounding beauty of the coast.
Too often, I never make it further north than Santa Barbara for the weekend, when just a little farther up the road there's a wild and natural playground waiting to be explored. And The Alisal Ranch is the perfect place to begin.
