The campground I stayed at was Shallow Bay. Here is a picture of the crowded beach.
The picture of my 4Runner was not at a campground but at a rest stop. There are mountains on one side of the road, then plains where the road is, then the ocean. Here is a picture of the rest stop, I turned the camera slightly to the right to show the crowded rest stop by the ocean.
I showed the first picture of my loaded car, to show some people still can use the extra cargo space and payload offered in the 3rd Generation. Since the new 4Runner is considerably larger, I was hoping for a bigger payload and cargo area, not less.
