Escape to Big Sur: 37 Psychedelic Outdoor Pieces to Pack

Break away from desk life this Memorial Day weekend for Big Sur, a tangle of mountain and forests on the Northern California coastline. With its brisk, clean air, lush neon green forests, and unbelievable ocean sunsets, it's guaranteed to bring out the laid-back survivalist in you. Equidistant to the wild woods of the Pacific Northwest and a stone's throw from San Francisco's psychedelic heritage, Big Sur offers the perfect West Coast blend, so we've collected a roundup of everything you'll need to head into the redwoods. All will come in handy when taking a dip in McWay Falls at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, hiking the Tanbark Trail, or even relaxing in a hot tub (and some Pacific views) at the Post Ranch Inn.
