17 MILE DRIVE - PEBBLE BEACH, CALIFORNIA

There are approximately 20 stops along the well marked route, each with a landmark of interest and paved parking for your vehicle. From the trademark Lone Cypress tree to the Restless Sea, Seal Rock to Spanish Bay and Spyglass Hill, if the names of these places don't evoke emotion to the active imagination, the sights, sounds and smells should do the trick. Daylight hours are perfect guarantees to get the stunning photos--but don't miss one of the awesome sunsets. A blazing, golden sun falling into the ocean behind the Lone Cypress (trademark) tree is one of California's most romantic pleasures to be experienced. See Workshop for the POV of the sunset at the horizon.

They are not kidding when they tell you it is trademarked. You cannot use the tree and photos you take of it in promotional materials for anything. If you ask how anybody can own images of nature, the answer is that you are a guest visiting private property owned by the Pebble Beach Company.
