San Diego, Part 2: Torrey Pines State Park

I visited Torrey Pines State Park twice while in San Diego. Located north of La Jolla, the park is a reserve for the rare Torrey Pine and migrating seabirds. The coastline here is gorgeous, abutting sandstone cliffs that provide spectacular views of the ocean from within the pine groves. The whole area smells of fresh pine and salt air. It’s beautiful.
