U.S. Geological Survey research geologists are keeping a close eye on the 13 acres of new land in Big Sur created by the Mud Creek Slide, about 9 miles north of the Monterey County/San Luis Obispo County line. The land is continuing to shift and change the shape of California's coastline along Highway 1. Sets of pictures taken on May 27 and June 13 show the slide continuing to move from the top down toward the ocean. U.S. Geological Survey
