Elephant Seals occupy the California coast throughout the year.
The Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery is located four miles north of Hearst Castle and hosts 25,000 seals in the course of a year.
The Año Nuevo State Park in Pescadero and Point Reyes National Seashore are other great spots to see rookeries.
“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.”
“The environment is everything that isn’t me.”
“Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.”
~Vincent Van Gogh
