I've been on the road now for about one week.
Its really been awesome to break free of the routine and stimulate the senses with new sights and smells.
So far the highlight of my short journey has been a wonderful hot springs I found located just off highway 101. Gaviota Hot Springs.
Located just off the 101 Highway heading north, past the highway 1, Lompoc/Vandeberg Exit)
I believe its on the east side of the highway. Just follow frontage road until you get to a small dirt parking area. There is a sign there and a trail head. Walk about 10 minutes up the trail. You will come to a split in the trail towards the top of the mountain. Take the split off to the right. Just a short walk up and you will run into the Hot Springs.
