This institute is in a great location overlooking the ocean and in an area that seems to be full of educational/research institutions. It is within a short driving distance of the Torrey Pines beach area.

I returned to The Salk recently, just to renew old memories. I had been here several times at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, to discuss vaccines with Dr. Salk. The view from his office was incredible, and the artwork in his office, done by his wife, was impressive. They are both gone, now, but returning to the Institute, at sunset, was a very nice thing to do.

Got a great tour of their Light Microscopy Facilities! Took some fun pictures at the reflecting pool, not really a good tourist spot, unless you are a scientist!

This building has a beautiful marble walkway with water running through the middle, a view of the ocean at the end. Great design and a real treat when there is a beautiful sunset - plus there will be plenty of parking after hours.
