Big Sur is one of my favorite places, and it has been badly damaged and partially cut off by landslides from California’s epic rainfall this Spring. It would seem very much like Apple to choose Big Sur to highlight this beautiful area and bring attention to its current plight. Big Sur has my vote. Fingers crossed.
