Cypress Tree Avenue – Point Reyes, California


Cypress Tree Avenue – Point Reyes, California

Seen here is the stunning cypress tree lined road that leads to the historic KPH public coast radio station in Point Reyes, California. For most of the 20th century, it provided ship to shore communications including telegrams (using Morse code) and marine telex service (using radioteletype). The station discontinued commercial operation in 1998, but is operated occasionally as a historic service – its signal can be tuned in throughout a large portion of the western hemisphere. [source]
