Big Sur

In the purple light, heavy with redwood, the slopes drop seaward,
Headlong convexities of forest, drawn in together to the steep

─Robinson Jeffers

"The name 'Big Sur' is derived from the original Spanish-language 'el sur grande', meaning 'the big south', or from 'el paĆ­s grande del sur', 'the big country of the south'." (Wikipedia)

And away from the highway and the coast, the rivers and trees . . .
