Ich habe mehrfach die Kueste Kaliforniens bereist. Ich moechte hier schon mal die Orte vorstellen, die ich bereits besucht habe.
In 2009 habe ich mir vorgenommen, diese Strecke vom noerdlichsten Teil in Kalifornien zu befahren.Hier moechte ich nun einige Fotos zeigen und ein paar wenige Informationen zu den Orten einstellen.Wer Waelder und hohe Baeume mag, ist im Norden Kaliforniens gut aufgehoben.

I have driven the Pacific Coast Highway/No. 1 more than once. I would like to show you some pics of the places I have visited.

The PCH was built in 1934 and is about 1.055 km long. It goes from kinda Crescent City way up in the North of California and it ends just after Dana Point in the south 65 miles before San Diego. It connects North with South California and goes mostly along the Pacific Coast. It will lead you from the coast to the forests and through small towns and big towns such as San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The PCH is called in the North Shoreline Highway from Garberville to Marin City and from the stretch of Buellton to Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo to San Francisco it is called Cabrillo Highway. In the southern part it is called Pacific Coast Highway between Oxnard and Dana Point.
The whole part of the so called PCH is also called Blue Star Memorial Highway in honor of the members of the armed forces of the United States of America.
