"More beautiful stretches"

Coming up from Cabrillo Highway, it is hard to beat the peaceful views of untouched beaches - but Pescadero Creek sure is comparable! The road winds up through the hill, first in the shrubbery, then in Douglas firs and madrones, and finally into the redwoods. Heading westbound, the road offers a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean (is it possible to use the word "stunning" too much?)

To be fair, there is very little in the town aside from a few county offices, cottage-like residences and overpriced gas stations. Cell phone reception goes away really quickly as you head up the road, and residents here (all five of them) pay a lot for a place that has virtually nothing there. But there is something about the nothing-ness that makes it so unique, and so beautiful.
