Road Trippin' and a Not-So-Lonely Cypress Tree

Jeans: Buckle, Sweater: Hollister, Scarf: F21, Shoes: Vans

I'm well aware that I'm wearing almost exactly the same clothes from this post, but that's what happens when you're living out of your car for 2 weeks. We took the 17-mile drive in Monterey and stopped at the lone cypress tree. I can't remember what I'm laughing about in the above pictures, but I do remember thinking this tree was pretty funny. It gets a lot of hype because it's pretty, it's old, and it has survived on the edge of a cliff for 250 years (the last 60 years have been with the support of cables). It's also the registered icon of Pebble Beach Golf Club. What makes this tree so funny is that it's actually not so lonely. You can see in these pictures that there's actually another cypress tree not too far to the left of it. As someone who works in the marketing industry, I can respect the brilliant job Pebble Beach and the whole Monterey Peninsula have done to hype this lone cypress tree. Yes, it's beautiful. Don't get me wrong. But there are a lot of beautiful trees out there. This one just happens to be quite popular.

I am loving looking at your road trip photos! I haven't spent much time out west, although my husband has. I'm hoping that a road trip out west will be one of our next trips together!
