South Coast Ridge Rd Repair & Closure

•March 9, 2015 • 1 Comment

From Duke Krenkle, USFS:
“Hi Kate. I’m trying to contact as many residents as I can in the Prewitt Ridge area and thought you might be able to post some information on your Blog. The Forest Service is planning on completing some road repair work on South Coast Ridge Rd. in april and unfortunately it’s going to require a full closure. I haven’t gotten all the details yet and I’m hopeful we’ll be able to negotiate a time frame for the closure that can accommodate resident’s schedules, possibly one or two weekends. All I know right now is that the contractor will start april 20th and should be completely finished by april 31st. The project is located a half mile in from Nacimiento Summit in a narrow stretch of road.”

As soon as Duke receives further info and forwards it on to me, I will post it here. These posts also go to FB and Twitter, but there are those who live in these mountains who aren’t on line – not many, but a few, so if we can all work to assure that those individuals also are notified, it would be helpful.

Wild flowers, March 2015

The last two are shooting stars, as XT points out, the first one is popcorn flower, and the second one is hound’s tongue. Sorry, my Jepson’s is still lost. It’s here somewhere! I have three more photos to upload, but will do so in a separate post, so I don’t need to rewrite the identifications.

Traffic Accident Closes Highway One for over 6 hours

•March 3, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Just before 6 pm last night, a traffic accident near Ragged Point Inn closed Highway One in both directions for over 6 hours while rescue crews, fire, a heavy duty tow truck, and a helicopter tried to reach the driver and secure and retrieve a vehicle over the edge. The CHP website listed the accident as a fatality.

Wild Weather

Wow, was today fun, or what? Reports of sudden squalls, lightning, hail, sunshine and rain simultaneously, in various locations throughout Big Sur. I only got .11″ up here today, but more yesterday – sorry, I forgot to write it down, but I remember it was up to .25″ at one point yesterday afternoon.

This was from yesterday.

Foto Fridays and Photo Contest

•February 27, 2015 • 2 Comments

As long as I have been running these header photo contests, people have sent in photos that won’t fit the format, no matter what I say or do. The same was true this time. Some of the photos have been absolutely stunning. I’ve decided to feature one or two “normal” photos rather randomly on Fridays, based on what I received that week. So if you have a photo that hasn’t lent itself to the header contest, now is your chance. Here is one from Dale Diesel (the rainbow) and one from Perry McCormick, both submitted for the contest.image


And congratulations to our winner, Marie!
