Tall Tales From The Field

“…the greatest meeting of land and water in the world.”

That’s what landscape artist Francis McComas  said about this spot along the Pacific Ocean Coastline at Carmel, California.  Point Lobos State Natural Reserve became part of California’s State Park system in 1933. They only allow 150 vehicles in the park at any given time in order to preserve its tranquility.
