Point Lobos

This area contains headlands, coves and rolling meadows. The offshore area forms one of the richest underwater habitats in the world popular with divers. Wildlife includes seals, sea lions, sea otters and migrating gray whales (from December to May). Thousands of seabirds also make the reserve their home. Hiking trails follow the shoreline and lead to hidden coves. The area used to be the home of a turn-of -the-century whaling and abalone industry. A small cabin built by Chinese fishermen from that era still remains at Whalers Cove and is now a cultural history museum.

    1. Sheri, Yes, I agree. When I hike the paths of Point Lobos, or the cliffside paths of Montana de Oro closer to home, I feel as if I better understand Thoreau’s determination to “live deliberately.” Thanks for stopping by. I’m happy to meet you.
