Kerouac's Big Sur


This week's cover story was about a new documentary about Beat writer Jack Kerouac in Big Sur.

The story even got featured on AltWeeklies.com.

The cover photo and inside art brought me down to the same areas in Big Sur where Kerouac wrote his famous novel at fellow beat Lawrence Ferlhinghetti's cabin (below).

The article's writer, Stuart Thornton, and I took the beaten path near Bixby Bridge (seen from below in the first image) to find the hidden cabin.

It was a really cool find. I packed a handful of lenses and my trusty D700 in a small bag and wandered away.


There were all these great little details about the house, like the hand-painted signs and tub in the yard.
