For most people, the thought of reading about bridges might be enough to place them in a trance. But, bridges are important; they connect us to places that otherwise might be inaccessible. Nowhere else is this point made clearest than on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) or Highway One (HWY 1). When traveling HWY 1 between Carmel and Cambria, a driver heavily relies on the use of bridges to be able to traverse this rocky, majestic coastline. Without them, drivers the world over would not be able enjoy the wonders of the Big Sur coast. Not only do these bridges have a highly functional role on Highway 1, but they are also famous landmarks in their own right, beckoning tourists to stop and photograph them. Thus, join me as we take a tour along the Central California coast by way of the bridges of Monterey County.
