Thornton State Park

This is a view of hills along the Pacific coast south of San Francisco. I had finished work in the area early, and was waiting for a flight back East. My hotel was in an area of uninspiring urban sprawl, but I mapped a nearby park and decided to spend some time there. I was amazed by the steep cliffs, colorful succulents covering the land and windswept trees of the area.
