Big Creek Bridge

Detailed Description

A two-day rainstorm from January 26-28, 2021 caused numerous mudslides, debris flows, and other issues along California's coastal Highway 1 through Big Sur. This is Big Creek Bridge, and Big Creek is still murky. Plumes of the muddy runoff are clearly visible in the ocean. This area is just south of Rat Creek, where heavy runoff took out a section of Highway 1.
