The Inspiration: Do you like to travel? Me, too. I keep a Wanderlust Bucket List and it seems to grow exponentially every time I look at Instagram. In searching for things to do near San Francisco, I stumbled across photos of a place known as Calla Lily Valley, off Rt 1 in Garrappatta State Park. This area near Big Sur is known for sweeping cliffside views of a misty ocean and coastline. Each spring, Calla Lily Valley erupts into a veritable sea of white blossoms, and if the photos do the real thing any justice, it is simply breathtaking. Imagine walking down a small valley that gently meanders back and forth, eventually meeting the Pacific Ocean. As you walk, a light sea breeze tickles your face while the vegetation around you sways in unison. You notice a lightly floral, salty scent and realize you are surrounded by thousands of bright white lilies. This is what I imagined when I read more about Calla Lily Valley. It’s the newest addition to my Wanderlust Bucket List.
