Has The Times Travel Section only recently discovered Monterey County? Earlier this spring you printed a feature article on Carmel. May 12 you selected Big Sur, only 26 miles south of Carmel, for another front-page story. What have we done to deserve all this attention?
Enough travelers already clog the relatively few roads in Monterey County. The beaches often resemble those of Southern California on summer weekends. As a travel agent, I know that there are many beautiful places in the U.S. I respectfully request your travel section to explore those outside Monterey County for the next few years. It would be the neighborly thing to do.
