Once called "the greatest meeting of land and water in the world", Point Lobos is a rocky tree-covered headland, considered by many to the crown jewel of the California State Park System. Point Lobos State reserve protects unique groves of Monterrey pines and Monterey cypress. Their wind-twisted beauty can only exist in such an environment of salt-sprayed, foggy coolness, which results from the meeting of the cold waters of the Monterey Canyon with the warm winds of summer. Ansel Adams and Edward Weston used to roam the place freely, sometimes with nude models, to create some of their masterpieces, but nowadays, because of heavy visitation the access is very regulated to protect Point Lobos beauty.
