The plan was to photograph the Bixby Creek Bridge, something I’ve been wanting to do for years. But it was a busy holiday weekend and there simply wasn’t any place left to park on the side of the road. Fortunately I had already made an impromptu stop one minute earlier at Rocky Creek to snap this shot, so I didn’t feel too bad about missing out on Bixby.
This was my third road-trip on Highway One. It never gets any easier, all those white-knickled hairpin curves, mostly without guardrails. But the beauty of California’s Big Sur never gets old. This is without a doubt one of the most spectacular scenic drives in the world.
