Hiking the CA coastline
My husband and I enjoy hiking & vacations on California coastline. The California coast offers a variety of great hikes and views. The state budget cuts are threatening public access to these gorgeous lands and we risk losing these amazing treasures. I hope sharing these images will help people realize the beauty of our coastline. By visiting our parks, we can help keep them ours. Not all of these hikes are on state parks or right on the coastline, but at least within a couple miles thereof.

Lazy elephant seals

Piedras Blancas was one of my favorite spots on our driving trip down the Pacific Highway in California. I could have spent hours watching the elephant seals sun bathe while the young pups clumsily try to wedge their way into the huddle.
