Ventana 1980s

Postby Karnak on Thu Jul 13, 2017 1:20 pm

Hi, I hope I have posted this in the correct place!
I lived in Pacific Grove in 1982/83, I,m from the UK but was fortunate to live in fantastic California for a year and hiked and camped in Ventana/Los Padres many times, most times hiking in from (if I remember correctly) the visitors centre at Ventana to Ventana camp, Terrace, Barstow, Sykes and Redwood.
On two occasions myself and a friend hiked in from the old coast road to Strawberry camp and onto Redwood, Sykes and Barstow, we always took our border collie dogs with us, who loved it!
I so miss living there and especially the trips down the coast to hike out into the wilderness!
I would be very grateful if anyone has any time to reply and let me know how and what has changed since the early 80s
I have a few "slides"! If I can find them I will try and post them if that's possible
Unfortunately in the UK there are very few areas that come close to what I experienced in the Monterey/Big Sur area so would very much appreciate some feedback
Many thanks for taking the time to read through this! :D
