ABOUT THE CO VER: A sheltered Corona del Mar cove reflects but one facet of the Pacific Coast's varied and scenic pattern. Coastal communities and their inland neighbors also offer variety in character, yet elements of the revered traditional and the upstart innovative are united by a network of vitality and foresight. Stories about the California Gold Coast begin on page 62. Cover photo by Jeff Wetmore.
