I went today to one of my favorite places in San Diego. It is the first time I visited the Torrey Pines State Reserve alone.
The Torrey pine is the rarest native pine tree in the Americas, growing naturally only at the State Reserve and on Santa Rosa Island.
I walked on one of the trails to the overlook.
Pelicans came flying by.
The coast is very beautiful here.
The lodge is now a museum where I saw a movie about the reserve.
Since the lodge is located on a high bluff one has a good view of the valley below
