The Enchantment of the Torrey Pine

One of my favorite places in San Diego County is situated on a plateau with cliffs that overlook Torrey Pines State Beach. My attraction to this nature gem began as a young child when my family  would make the 20-mile trek from Poway to the beach (before the 56 Freeway).

I never tire of the half-a-dozen trails, which are lined with pine trees, coastal sage shrub, chaparral, wildflowers, and other native plants. In fact, this historic and former land of the Kumeyaay is home to the nation's rarest pine tree, Pinus torreyana, which grows only here and on Santa Rosa Island near Santa Barbara. The views are beyond spectacular as you look out across the deep blue Pacific.

As Aristotle said, "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous."

Enjoy the below photos from today's hike.


  1. Hello everyone, I'm Patricia Sherman in Oklahoma USA right now. I would like to share with you my experience of borrowing USD $185,000.00 to clear my bank draft and start a new business. It all started when I lost my house and I took my stuff because of the bank policy and I met some bills and some personal needs. So I became very desperate and started looking for funds in every way. Fortunately for me, a friend of mine, Linda told me about a credit company firm, I was intrigued by the fraud, but I was intrigued by my situation and had no choice but to get advice from my friend about this company. contacting them really doubted me because of my past experience with online lenders, did you know that little? '' Elegantloanfirm@hotmail.com This company has been very helpful to me and my colleague and today, thanks to this credit company, the proud owner of well-organized work and responsibilities, they smiled back at me. So if you really need to grow or start your own business, or if you really need to borrow money in any financial hardship, we recommend you find a financial development opportunity in your business today. {E-mail:} Elegantloanfirm@hotmail.com ... online for credit not a victim of scam. Thank you.
