We decided to take the coastal drive, knowing it would take longer, but looking forward to the scenery. We were right on both counts:
A day’s driving through some of the most spectacular vistas imaginble, and a grueling task navigating narrow roadways, up and then down and then up and then down, downshifting constantly to save the brakes, slowing for hairpin turns to 15 mph, or 10, or sometimes 5.
All worth it.
