Rocky Creek Bridge in Big Sur

Rocky Creek Bridge in Big Sur

This shot of Big Sur bridges has a small natural bridge in the foreground and the Rocky Creek Bridge in the background. The Rocky Creek Bridge, built in 1932 is a reinforced concrete arch bridge located on Highway 1 just north of the more famous Bixby Bridge and a few miles south of Carmel-by-the-Sea, in Monterey County. There is a parking lot for visitors just northwest of the Rocky Creek Bridge.

The marine waters at the mouth of Rocky Creek provide habitat for the endangered southern sea otter. According to the Wikipedia entry, a ridge above Rocky Creek provides one of the few known habitats of Yadon’s piperia (or Yadon’s rein orchid), an endangered species.

The coordinates of the Rocky Creek Bridge are 36deg 22′ 46.34″ N, 121deg 54′ 7.7″ W.
