Baumann first visited Point Lobos State Preserve at the tip of California’s Monterey Peninsula in 1934. The coast was still undeveloped in many areas, so there was easy access and unhindered vistas. This spectacular rocky, irregular coastline is dotted with cypresses. These bristly, craggy trees, with wind-twisted trunks, grow tenaciously from rocky cliffs, surviving in a difficult environment.
