Do you see snow or trees?In 1542, the explorer Cabrillo called this point of land Cabo de Nieve - Cape Snow- to describe the white landscapes before him. No one's sure what he saw. In 1774, Tomás de la Peña, a missionary, gave this western-most point on the Monterey Peninsula the name. La Punta de cipreses, or Cypress Point. The name stuck and became official in 1967.
