Monterrey, California: Lone Cypress
This is one of the must stops on the 17-Mile Drive of the Monterrey Peninsula. It's also the corporate symbol for the company that owns most of the real estate in the area.
Supposedly there are pipes hidden from view that make sure the tree survives. but it's still part of a pretty picture. The coastline is spectacular, with plenty of opportunities to see wildlife. There's a nice little golf course that is one of the most famous in the world, Pebble Beach. The housing in that part of the world isn't bad either. It's a toll road, but worth the price.
