Photo tour of SLO’s beauty

For those of us lucky enough to call San Luis Obispo home, we know the beauty is unmatched. While we’re sad you can’t be here to share the beauty with us, we hope these images can transport you, even just for a moment, and remind you of what’s here waiting for you on your next visit.

Architecture Graveyard

Architecture Graveyard may be considered a hidden gem but for many, it’s one of the most well-loved hikes for others. The hike’s conclusion is met by old Cal Poly architecture students’ projects that have retired in the hills.
