Chances are you have seen photos from this historic Cypress tree tunnel before. I know I have, which is why I decided to drag my husband here with me this past weekend to check it out for myself!
The cypress tree tunnel was planted around 1930.
The best time to visit would probably be at sunset, however, that is of course the busiest time for photographers and other bloggers to be there. We went around 2pm on Sunday and there were only about 3 other families there, which wasn’t bad at all! This tree tunnel is super long so there is usually enough space for you to take pictures and be able to blur people out if needed. Which lets be real, I think all of us have had to blur out something or someone in our photos for the blog before! LOL
This is one of those spots where there isn’t much to do, but visiting at least once, is a must. It really is beautiful at all times of day. I would love to go back and visit during sunset sometime.
The sun radiating through the trees is always such a gorgeous sight.
At the end of the road you will come up on KPH which is a public coast radio station. It was around for most of the 20thcentury and provided ship to shore communications, including telegrams and marine telex service. The station has discontinued commercial operation in 1988, but it is occasionally operated as a historic service and signal can be tuned in throughout a large portion of the western hemisphere.
We didn’t get to make it down that far but seeing it through the tree tunnel was super pretty!
Here is a blooper photo for your amusement! 😀
Thanks for living a day in the Life Of Sawdey!
