Highway One Closed at Point Lobos temporarily

11:30 am – traffic going north is moving now.
Unfortunately, there was a fatal accident this morning at Point Lobos which has closed Highway One temporarily. Avoid traveling this area for a few hours, if you can. If not, expect long delays.

From a reader: “The policeman on duty won’t say anything. And now they have signs and the LED screen up stating that there is an accident and the road is closed. My husband is going to check from the south. I will let you know if I find out anything more.”

Latest info is that the road *might* open around noon. KSBW is reporting that it would open at 10:30 am, but that time has come and past, and it is still closed. Will update as I can.

Stunning January Days in Big Sur

After the cold, nasty, wet weather of December, January has been unbelievable. For me, it is better than summer, as it is not too hot, and there are no bugs yet. For weeks now, we have had just about the most perfect weather available anywhere in California. Add to that our stunning landscape, and it doesn’t get any better than this.

Here are a couple of Dan Danborn’s photos taken a few days ago:

Thanks, Dan! Those say it all.
