Elephant Seal Siesta

Elephant Seal Siesta Elephant Seals, San Simeon, Piedras Blancas, Rookery, Highway 1, Central California Coast

I took this shot at the Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery near San Simeon Bay in California along the famous Highway 1.  It’s a very cool spot where you can get up close with some very large wild animals. Male Elephant Seals can grow up to 5,000 pounds. The rookery includes some information, a viewing area and a quarter-mile boardwalk where you can see and hear (and smell) them as they nap, waddle around and swim.  For more check out a live cam or this site which has some interesting info.
