Wildfires: California Hwy 1 Closures
California is currently ravaged by wildfires. Several fires are burning around my neighborhood. One day the sky was completely dark and the next morning my car was covered with ashes.
2 Days ago there was a horrible fire just south of Santa Cruz (near Aptos). I saw it live on TV how people lost everything.
Highway 1 was closed that day near Airport Blvd in Santa Cruz.
Today Highway 1 was closed near Big Sur, just south of Pfeiffer State Park. I took this picture several miles up the road. The truck rushing towards the fire was a fire engine traveling at high speed.
If you are planning to travel beautiful scenic Highway 1, please check the road conditions. I will probably keep this post up to date and inform you about changes between San Francisco and L.A..
Hwy1 is always worth driving. Here is a picture I snapped today:
