Elephant Seals at Piedras Blancas


On the beach just north of Hearst Castle, a large group of elephant seals have "moved in" in the past few years. They bear their young and mate before heading back to the ocean. The location provides a rare opportunity to see the animals up close but with no danger to them or us.
