Trees Along The Path

after having spent the previous day driving the cabrillo highway and focusing on the big sur area, i eventually made it to my motel in monterey. The next morning, a blustery and foggy one, i made my way to san francisco.

the first area i visited was lands end on the western tip of the city. the fog would eventually lift in the late morning. meanwhile, i strolled along the coastal trail and the lands end trail. this scene was photographed along the former: monterey cypress lining the coast side of the pathway.

beginning in 1933, the city of san francisco and the federal government’s civilian works administration (cwa) planted thousands of monterey cypress around lands end to ‘beautify’ the area. after years of neglect, efforts are underway to prune and thin the trees of lands end to create a healthy forest.” ~ national park service – sutro district
