Magnificent SoCal views along Hwy 101 just before Torrey Pines, looking North:
In case like me you wonder why this area was called Torrey Pines, here it is: On the History page of the website of the Torrey Pines State National Reserve we can read about the naming of the Torrey Pine in 1850: "This was the year that California became a State of the Union. Parry was in San Diego as botanist for the US - Mexico Boundary Survey. Parry named the tree for his friend and colleague, Dr. John Torrey, of New York. Torrey was one of the leading botanists of his time."
