Photos of the mudslide

Tuesday afternoon saw another blow to the Big Sur State Park, who has suffered set-back after set back toward its goal to open by Memorial Day.  I think Mother Nature is telling us she is not ready for millions of visitors to her scarred and healing hills. When she tries to tell us gently, we sometimes don’t hear her, so she has to YELL to be heard.

These photos by Rain Greenslate, Chief of Maintenance Big Sur tell the story so well. She and Jo-ann are sending more tomorrow. Thanks ladies for sharing these with us and I will post as many of them tonight as I can, and more tomorrow!!

  1. You can barely see the K-rail protecting the Lodge in the first photograph. It is almost buried! Great perspective on this one, Rain! Thank you so much for allowing me to post these!

  2. I really must say the quote ‘a picture speaks louder than a 1000 words’ well fits the photos you put up. The fist couple in your other entry didn’t look all that bad, n0r what we saw on the news lastnight. Now that we grasp the pull picture (not to over use the pun) that really was a huge mudslide. Kate again thanks to Rain and yourself for enlightening us. Be safe!
