Last Fall, we went on a road trip up the California Coast and it was incredible. Stopping whenever we felt the urge, we saw some amazing sites. One spot that I had read about before the trip was the Piedras Blancas Elephant seal rookery and it did not disappoint. The best time to go is actually around Valentine's Day as a lot of babies will be running around. No matter when you go though, you are promised to see dozens to hundreds of seals playing and surfing in the water.
