Little Sur, Bixby, Rocky

At a wide curve in Hwy. 1, the Little Sur River has long fascinated me, so when approaching it from either direction we’d pull over to let traffic go by so I could slow down and enjoy it. A few times we even stopped on the shoulder to let sea sounds and smells mingle with the magic of the place in the silence between vehicles.

Though the surf sound is missing it’s visually nicer from the air, because we needn’t wait for low tide and scramble out past the rocks to risk a rogue wave while looking at the sea-carved stone.

Another spot popular with us is Bixby Bridge, and even some of the speeders will pull over there for a look.

Not many know about or try to get a look at Dinosaur Rock out at the point, but we like this perspective plus Castle Rock and the sea caves.

In a different region, the Rocky Creek Bridge with rare orchids and sea otters would draw a crowd, but so close to Bixby this one gets little attention.
