At the end of last week I was near La Jolla, CA for a conference. After the sessions each day I walked to nearby locations to get exercise and enjoy the SoCal sunshine.
Two of the evenings I visited the Salk Institute to pay homage to the architect Louis Kahn. This is a research lab institute that Kahn designed in the 60's and is a wonderful ensemble of an outdoor plaza flanked by the lab buildings. A must see and experience for all architects at least once in your life time.
The last evening I walked in the opposite direction into the Torrey Pines State Reserve. The trails wind down through the pines and coastal sage toward the beach. I ended up sketching in two locations and watching the beautiful sunset. The second location had incredible eroded land forms that were part of the cliffs leading to the beach. I ended staying too late and had to walk the trails back to the road in almost dark sky's.
