About this deal

If visitors can locate them, they can use bathrooms within California State Parks or federal campgrounds without paying an entrance fee. [113] But many of the bathrooms are not visible from Highway 1. This is due in part to the fact that restroom signs along Highway 1 were removed for aesthetic reasons. [111] Baez, Joan. "Chronology".

Jobs included harvesting lumber and tanoak bark, gold mining, and limestone processing. Fire plays a key role in the ecology of the upper slopes of the Big Sur region's mountains where chaparral dominates the landscape. [191] It is known that Native Americans burned chaparral to increase food production and promote grasslands for textiles, but little is known about the natural frequency of fire in the Santa Lucia Mountains. [10] :269–270 [192] A study of fire scars on sugar pines on Junipero Serra Peak found that at least six fires had burned the region between 1790 and 1901. [193] During the Spanish and Mexican era the Native Americans set fires regularly in coastal and valley grasslands to control brush growth and reduce fire risk. [193] The European homesteaders followed that tradition and set controlled burns every winter when conditions were right. [194] FEMA team assesses wildfire damage after the Basin Fire, 2008

The section of Highway 1 running through Big Sur is widely considered one of the most scenic driving routes in the United States, if not the world. [40] [41] [42] The views are one reason that Big Sur was ranked second among all United States destinations in TripAdvisor's 2008 Travelers' Choice Destination Awards. [43] The unblemished natural scenery owes much of its preservation to the highly restrictive development plans enforced in Big Sur; no billboards or advertisements are permitted along the highway and signage for businesses must be modestly scaled and of a rural nature conforming to the Big Sur region. The state of California designated the 72-mile (116km) section of the highway from Cambria to Carmel Highlands as the first California Scenic Highway in 1965. [44] [45] In 1966, First Lady Lady Bird Johnson led the official scenic road designation ceremony at Bixby Creek Bridge.

Michael Polish's "Big Sur", starring Jean-Marc Barr of " Dogville" as Kerouac is a strangely tepid experience for such searing psychological material. The fault lies in the heavy reliance on voiceover (all taken from the book), which distances us from what is happening onscreen. Scenes are not allowed to unfold, to explode, to develop, to sit there, because the voiceover is too insistent, interjecting itself every other moment. What would have happened if the voiceover had been used more sparingly? What f the beautiful collage effect of Kerouac's time in the woods (the film is stunningly beautiful) had been allowed to develop on its own, leaving more room for interpretation, chaos, life? There are moments that are allowed to breathe, but they are few and far between. Like underwater parks, these marine protected areas help conserve ocean wildlife and marine ecosystems. a b c d e f g Woolfenden, John (1981). Big Sur: A Battle for the Wilderness 1869–1981.

The Henry Miller Memorial Library is a nonprofit bookstore and arts center that opened in 1981 as a tribute to the writer. Miller lived in Big Sur from 1944 to February 1963 and wrote about Big Sur in his book Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch. It is a gathering place for locals and has become the focal point of individuals with a literary mind, [58] a cultural center devoted to Miller's life and work, and a popular attraction for tourists.

Big Sur ( / ˈ s ɜːr/) is a rugged and mountainous section of the Central Coast of the U.S. state of California, between Carmel and San Simeon, where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean. It is frequently praised for its dramatic scenery. Big Sur has been called the "longest and most scenic stretch of undeveloped coastline in the contiguous United States", [1] a sublime "national treasure that demands extraordinary procedures to protect it from development", [2] and "one of the most beautiful coastlines anywhere in the world, an isolated stretch of road, mythic in reputation". [3] The views, redwood forests, hiking, beaches, and other recreational opportunities have made Big Sur a popular destination for visitors from across the world. With 4.5 to 7 million visitors annually, [4] it is among the top tourist destinations in the United States, comparable to Yosemite National Park, but with considerably fewer services, and less parking, roads, and related infrastructure. [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] In 1848, two days after the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill, Mexico ceded California to the United States as a result of the Mexican–American War. The region is protected by the Big Sur Local Coastal Plan, which preserves it as "open space, a small residential community, and agricultural ranching." [14] Approved in 1986, the plan is one of the most restrictive local-use programs in the state, [15] and is widely regarded as one of the most restrictive documents of its kind anywhere. [16] The program protects viewsheds from the highway and many vantage points, and severely restricts the density of development. About 60% of the coastal region is owned by governmental or private agencies which do not allow any development. The majority of the interior region is part of the Los Padres National Forest, Ventana Wilderness, Silver Peak Wilderness or Fort Hunter Liggett.
