The drive along this dramatic coastline is awesome. The views spectacular around every corner.

When you drive along the Big Sur, you pass over the Bixby Bridge. It is one of the most photographed bridges.
The bridge is notable because of the 320 ft. length of the central span, and the height of 260 ft. above the creek.
Note the private house on top of the hill. Bet they have a good view !
The completion of the Bridge opened the Coast Highway 1 in l937. It was California's first official scenic highway - Route 1 in Monterey County from the Carmel River south to the County line.
This roadway and it's scenic corridor has been preserved for the people of the nation. It was dedicated on September 21st l966 by Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson
