Exploring Point Reyes

Yesterday Janelle and I drove over to the coast looking to catch glimpses of whales and elephant seals. Our destination was Point Reyes National Seashore. The views from the historic lighthouse where amazing with huge waves crashing to shore from the incoming winter storm.

While talking with the park rangers at the lighthouse we heard there where 300 elephant seals relaxing on the beach near the historic lifeboat station. On our way down we encountered some Happy California Cows. This cow decided to cross the road right in front of us. After yielding to the local residents we made our way to the seal overlook area. The elephant seals where huge! There where moms nursing their pups while the others laid lifeless on the beach.
