One type of tree is especially prevalent in the 17 Mile Drive area. It is the Cypress tree. The most famous among them is the Lone Cypress which sits on top of some barren rock and the official symbol of Pebble Beach. Some lawyer actually went as far as trademarking the tree against any commercial use. As you would say, only in America!!
And not far from the Lone Cypress you can see another bunch of cypress trees in another state of life, or more appropriately death. Among all these white-washed dead woods, there's one which has been coined the name of "Ghost tree". Check out the panoramic photo below for a closer look.
