Right off the windy, scenic roads of the Pacific Coast Highway is the Plaskett Creek Campground, located just across the road from the Sand Dollar Beach in the Big Sur area. Derived from “el sur grande” in Spanish, with a rough translation to “the big south”, this area was named because of an expedition led by Gaspar de Portola, a Spanish explorer that was a part in the establishment of the town of Monterey – Big Sur was considered a vast, open area located south of Monterey. The Esselen tribes of Native Americans, among others were said to be the first to that area. Darkness was quickly approaching as we were ready to relax under the Monterey pine trees within the Los Padres National Forest. Our campsite was ready with tents, chairs, covers for the rain, and a burning fire. Surrounding the campfire, we made s’mores, played games, and ate burgers as the dark night descended upon us. Good times!
