Landscape, Photography

17-Mile Drive is a scenic road through Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula in California, much of which hugs the Pacific coastline and passes famous golf courses, mansions and scenic attractions, including the Lone Cypress, Bird Rock and the 5,300-acre Del Monte Forest of Monterey Cypress trees.

The iconic 250 year old Lone Cypress suffered a major damage (lost the left limb) from a wind storm in February 2019.

However, we did enjoy driving through the entire scenic route and took a few pictures:
