C O N N E C T I N G W I T H NA T U R E Spending time in nature can help reduce stress and elevate the mood, which is probably why San Diego locals are known for their pos- itive outlook. San Diego is home to a variety of natural landscapes ranging from beaches and wetlands to mountains and desert. Located on the cliffs above Torrey Pines State Beach in La Jolla, Torrey Pines Natural Reserve offers a spectacular blend of coastal wilderness, canyons, parks and hiking trails where visitors and locals can feel the healing power of the earth and ocean. Adjacent to Silver Strand State Beach in Coronado, the South BayNational Wildlife Refuge encompasses a remarkable 4,000-acre oasis for pro- tected birds, fish and other animals. Bird watching is popular year- round in the refuge and is a perfect practice for those seeking to recon- nect with nature. There is also a walking trail that runs parallel to the neighboring Bayshore Bikeway offering beautiful views of San Diego Bay and the reserve. There's something to smile about in San Diego.
