100 Things I Like: The Gnarly Trees of SJB

Pepper trees. That's what those huge gnarly trees around San Juan Bautista are.  I like gazing at them because I like to find faces in the gnarls. There are at least two faces in that tree above.

There used to a few 150 year old pepper trees  around the San Juan Bautista State Historic Park. The trees were diseased, so they got chopped. Left are just the stumps.   For more about those historic trees, check out this story by Adam Breen that was published in The Pinnacle.

The next time you're in the second largest city of San Benito County, and have the time, take a walk around town to gaze at the gnarly trees yourself. Until then, you can see a few more here.
