Mud Creek Slide

Krista Almanzan

Joe Erwin and I stand on land that didn’t exist before the Mud Creek Slide.  The ocean is at our backs.  In front of us, a semi-truck hauling enormous boulders makes its way down an access road carved into this new hillside.

“You know when you first see it you are overwhelmed by how big it is.  And you think what can we possible do,” says Joe Erwin, Project Manager with CalTrans.
