Hundreds of Northern Elephant Seals on the beach – The Californian Coastal Trail

These photos were taken at the Hearst-San Simeon State Park and the elephant seal vista point located about 5 miles north of Hearst Castle along the coast of San Luis Obispo County.

Northern Elephant Seals on the beach on the Californian Coastal Trail.  The seals in the photos are the females.  I only saw 1 pup as it was being taken to sea by it’s mother.  The males, who are significantly larger, are out to sea this time of year.
