Torrey Pines

Torrey Pines State Reserve, snuggled between Ja Jolla and Del Mar, is the home to one of the rarest trees in the world.  The Torrey Pines only exist in this small coastal strip and on Santa Rosa Island, one of the Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California.  The heavy June marine layer stretched over the coastal strip yesterday when Kongo visited.  A few hundred yards to the east the skies were crystal clear and hot.  Along the strip of coast it was all “June Gloom” as the weather phenomena is popularly known in San Diego.
