"Bixby Bridge and Big Sur Coastline"
October 2006, Big Sur, California
The Bixby Bridge is located 120 miles south of San Francisco, and is widely considered to be the northern boundary marker of Big Sur. Built in 1932, the bridge is one of the most photographed landmarks on the Pacific Coast. Its 320-foot length makes it one of the longest single-span concrete bridges in the world. Thankfully, aesthetics were given high priority by the bridge's designers. Just to the north lies the stunning coastline of Carmel Highlands, whereas a short drive south takes you straight into the heart of Big Sur. No matter which way you travel from the Bixby Bridge, you are heading straight into heaven.
