I recently drove up the coast to Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo with my wife and daughter to visit family and friends. While in SLO, I thought it might be a good idea to find a hiking trail to go explore the area more in hopes of finding a nice place to shoot the sunset.
Since Laguna Lake is visible from the house I was staying at, I was advised that the hiking trails around Laguna Lake Park would likely be my best bet. Turns out they were right. One of the trails led me to the top of a hillside with a beautiful view of Laguna Lake with the sun setting off in the distance.
