Bixby Canyon Bridge

The drive along the Pacific Coast Highway was incredible.  The scenery, the ocean, the winding roads, and lots of good music seemed to dictate the pace of our near perfect drive.  Bixby Bridge, also known as Bixby Canyon Bridge or Bixby Creek Bridge, is the most popular landmark along the 101 and it's easy to see why.  

This short stretch of road provides stunning views of the California coastline.  From the rocky cliffs to the pristine beaches, this is Big Sur at her best.  As you slow down to cross Bixby Bridge your surroundings suddenly open up as you glide across the canyon.  For that brief moment, it's like seeing the PCH for the first time all over again.

I sincerely hope you were listening to the appropriate Death Cab for Cutie song when crossing said bridge.

Thank you, Andrea.

And you bet we listened to that song, Wendy :)
