Cypress tree tunnel, California
This photo of a cypress tree-lined road was taken in Point Reyes National Seashore, a marine and coastal reserve in California. A portion of the park protects the marine habitat in the harbours along the coast. Inland, the area’s grasslands, marshlands and wooded uplands present a diverse collection of landscapes – including the cypress tree tunnel you see here, which was planted around 1930.
At the end of this road is an old radio station known as KPH. It's mostly a historic site that still broadcasts locally but was once a vital communications relay for the many ships that passed by Point Reyes, especially during World War II.
