Drove up the 154 from Santa Barbara (45 miles) to Los Olivos on June 24 th 2011. The drive was so very scenic with several vista points to stop and admire the view and take pictures. Pictures do not do the scenery justice.
The San Rafael Mountains were gorgeous. They are the backdrop of Neverland Ranch.
Lake Cachuma was majestic as well. Here are some pictures of the drive to Los Olivos.
