Today‘s Mich’s Monday Mantra is coming to you from an AWESOME location, the Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery near San Simeon, California.
The northern elephant seal, Mirounga angustirostris, is an extraordinary marine mammal. It spends eight to ten months a year in the open ocean, diving 1000 to 5800 feet deep for periods of fifteen minutes to two hours, and migrating thousands of miles, twice a year, to its land-based rookery for birthing, breeding, molting, and rest. Piedras Blancas is a great place to view these remarkable creatures during their time onshore.
The Piedras Blancas elephant seal rookery spreads over 6 miles of shoreline around Point Piedras Blancas on the central coast of California.
This place is extraordinary and magical and was the perfect place for Mich’s Monday Mantra – Just Hanging Out
