Every week we pick a newly submitted photo from the Flickr Group "See Monterey- Beautiful Photos of Monterey County." This week's winner is "Los Padres Forest Houses" submitted by Samuel Morataya

Los Padres Forest Houses Nikon N80

The Los Padres National Forest spans five counties: Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Kern. In Monterey County, Los Padres National Forest extends through Big Sur and out toward the Salinas Valley. It houses redwood groves, the California condor, and provides a refuge for 468 species of fish and wildlife, as well as endangered and sensitive plant species.
