17 Mile Drive
Back on US 1 we headed out of Monterey to 17 Mile Drive. We went through Pacific Grove and passed by the Point Pinos Lighthouse to get to the nearest gate for the 17 Mile Drive.
We paid the entrance fee and went through the gate onto 17 Mile Drive. The scenery along the drive was as stunning as always. We stopped at the many view points to watch birds and seals.
We were pestered by the ground squirrels at some stops. They had had become used to being fed by tourists passing through.
Look for the seals sharing the rocks with all the birds.
