Nick Connell came to San Diego in 1971 and began exploring an isolated portion of the Torrey Pines State Nature Reserve.One day, Nick literally tumbled into a ravine and had a vision in which a wizened old man with flowing white hair and beard gave him permission to take up residence right on the spot.

Nick began chiseling into the sandstone side of the ravine and within months created, by hand, a two-room cave. Over the years, the self-taught artist decorated the sandstone walls of his cave with colorful bas relief carvings expressing his all-encompassing views on religion and philosophy.Nick the Hermit lived in his cave for 20 years, under the nose of park rangers, until fate interceded.THE TORREY PINES HERMIT - a delightful 24-page mini-book with historic color and black and white images of the hermit, his amazing cave, and art - brings together for the first time the extraordinary account of one of San Diego’s most colorful characters.
