Birthing Season at the Elephant Seal Rookery
Between December and February, mother elephant seals give birth to their young right on the beach at the Elephant Seal Rookery in San Simeon. Stand on the cliffs and watch the circle of life unfold. Locals’ tip: Head north from the Rookery on the Boucher Trail to avoid the crowds and find five more elephant seal overlooks.
The House That Olallieberries Built
Linn’s Fruit Bin began as a simple farmstand outside Cambria in the 1970s, known for its fruit, preserves, and pies. Take a country drive to the stand and taste Linn’s famous pie made with olallieberries — an unusual cross between Loganberries and Youngberries.
