Four years ago, I discovered the Pacific Coast Highway in Sunset magazine. By the way, if you've never read an issue of Sunset - beware - this publication is addicting! More specifically, Sunset magazine embroils the senses with the unique, fantastic getaways and the most inspiring and delicious interior decorating a magazine publication has to offer.
In the beginning, my basic knowledge of Pacific Coast Highway, or PCH as it's commonly known, was how the highway mingled with the west coast of the United States from the northern California coast to Southern California. I had been searching for a fantastic road trip adventure, and, to my traveler's delight, Pacific Coast Highway was the journey I was looking for!
After piling through information on Pinterest about PCH, my heart was pounding to go and explore the grains of sand, exquisite views, and glorious mountains, which caress the Pacific Coast Highway shoreline.
Added to this knowledge was special on road trips from Sunset, which included PCH from Washington State to California. What ?!?! Can I take the coast ALL THE WAY from SoCal to Washington state? Now it wasn't a question of IF I would take this road trip by the reigns and ride PCH all the way like a wild mustang to be tamed, No! This now turned into a "How am I going to make this happen?" event.
In the months to come, I just pondered bits and pieces of the road trip on PCH, in one big uninterrupted daydream. Like a continuous daydream, my journey hadn't fossilized until a car accident in which I barely escaped death. This event reminded me that life is too short not to live out my dreams. The time had come upon me to make this dream a reality, so in April of 2016, I started planning my journey on Google Maps.
