Elephant seal walk at Ano Nuevo SP

Most of the lab braved wet and windy weather to visit Ano Nuevo State Park during the elephant seal pupping and mating season.  Fortunately for us, seals are more active on cold, rainy days and we came came very close to one seal, witnessed a couple of fights, and heard lots of noisy pups. It’s definitely worth a visit!
