Ghost Packing: Big Sur
Ghost Packing Tips: Big Sur
The name "Big Sur" is derived from the Spanish "El Grande Sur" meaning "the big south."
Artists like Henry Moore, Jack Kerouac, Henry Miller, Hunter S Thompson, Rita Hayworth, Orson Welles, and Joan Baez have all called Big Sur home.
The most popular activities in Big Sur are hiking and hitting the beach, both made all the more scenic by the Santa Lucia Mountains rise nearly a mile above sea-level.
Must haves for a trip to this locale are iconoclastic literature, loose knits in sweater and bikini form, and a surfboard.
