5.     Hi Mountain Lookout during a Meteor Shower- Get wild and take a trek out to the interior of San Luis Obispo County.  On the road between Lake Lopez and Pozo, at an elevation of about 3,000 feet in the Los Padres Forest, the location is known as one of the best places to view the California Condor.  But as the sun sets, and the most dramatic of astronomical events take place, that is the time to hit the road with your honey.  Trek out beyond the city lights, view shooting stars, the constellations and if you are lucky a splendid meteor shower.  Take your kiss to the outer reaches and beyond.  There could not be a more out of the world place to make your own stars align!
