THE SEVENTEEN MILE DRIVE is a toll road on the peninsula west of Monterey. It provides spectacular views of the coast, inland forests and wealthy estates and mansions. The country clubs and golf courses are world famous. The local fauna is geared to entertain the tourists (and be fed by them) as the pictures on this page will confirm!

The lone cypress on a rock towards the south of the peninsula is perhaps one of the most photographed trees in the world....
