What do you see?


While hiking Torrey Pines State Beach at low tide we found this interestingly shaped rock in the tide pools.  You can imagine two eyes and nostrils.  We thought it looked a bit like the head of a porpoise, or maybe of an alligator.  What do you see?


Low Tide at Torrey Pines State Beach


I recently took a hike along Torrey Pines State Beach from the north end parking lot down past Flat Rock to Black Beach.  This pic is just to the south of Flat Rock.  Pretty nice views!

Hiking Torrey Pines


At Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve (located between La Jolla and Del Mar) you can hike up on top through maritime chaparral and coastal sage scrub, then head through other-worldly eroded terrain down to a beautiful beach.  In this pic, the large rock just to the right of the cliff is known as “Flat Rock”.

Torrey Pines Ocean View


A great place to hike is Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve (San Diego county) which boasts beautiful ocean views and one of the nation’s rarest pine trees, the Torrey pine, which is only found in this area and on Santa Rosa Island off the coast of Santa Barbara.  This view is looking north toward Los Penasquitos Lagoon and Hwy 101.
