Año Nuevo State Park
During my sabbatical I visited Año Nuevo State Park(California) to see the Elephant Seals

During the summer (when these pictures were taken), the Elephant Seals are mostly subadults who have returned to molt their fur.

The best time to visit is the late winter (Dec-Mar) when the big adult males, 14 to 16 feet long and weighing up to 2 1/2 tons, are fighting for the females.

Great White Sharks are also common visitors during the winter. Visit www.pelagic.org for more details.
