Año Nuevo State Park: Elephant Seals + Pups!
Last weekend, my sister-in-law visited us in the Bay Area and we took her to Año Nuevo State Park, which has been on our bucket list since we moved here. Brice and I being big animal-lovers, this is the ideal weekend spot for us.
It’s important you purchase tickets ahead of time if you are planning to go between December 15 and March 31, as during the mating and pup season they sell out. I love ranger-guided walks because you get a live perspective of the area and an understanding of the foliage and it’s history. Plus, they show you the coolest places to see animals!
Yep, took a selfie with an elephant seal. Take that, Ellen DeGeneres.
My husband, Brice, and sister-in-law, Jillian. They are enjoying the view.
