In the late afternoon today, we hiked along the upland portion of Scripps Coastal Reserve, also known as “the Knoll.” It’s an easy-going trail that runs about a half-mile, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. On this particular day, it was cold, rainy, and INCREDIBLY WINDY. If you’re not careful, you could easily fall off a cliff.

Not only are you treated with impressive views of the ocean, the beach, and La Jolla, but you can also see the backyard of Ron Burkle’s spectacular mansion.
