I love this place and this tree. It is a survivor against all odds. It is always a reminder to stay true to your dreams no matter what the odds say.. as a very good friend once said.. “You never know what is just around the corner for you.. And you will never know if you never take a peek”
Standing on a granite hillside off California’s scenic 17-mile drive in Pebble Beach, the Lone Cypress is a western icon, and has been called one of the most photographed trees in North America. Possibly as old as 250 years, the cypress has been scarred by fire and held in place with cables for 65 years.
The Monterey Cypress grows naturally only in Pebble Beach and Point Lobos.
