Hitchhiking in Big Sur, 1971

The hitchhiking movement reaches its peak around 1971 especially during the summer in Big Sur.  As reported by the Monterey Herald, Big Sur became a Mecca for young travelers who were looking for a ride north or south in the state or just starting a backpacking trip in the Big Sur backcountry.  Three young women hitchhiking on Highway 1 in Big Sur on September 5, 1971.  (Monterey County Herald Archives)
