"Aņo Nuevo State Reserve is the site of the largest
mainland breeding colony in the world for the northern elephant seal,
and the interpretive program has attracted increasing interest every
winter for the past 19 years.
The males battle for mates on the beaches and the females give birth to
their pups on the dunes." - Aņo
Directions: First, consult the map in the link above. Travel north on
Highway 1 from Santa Cruz to the park entrance, a mile or so north of the border
between Santa Cruz County and San Mateo County, about two thirds of the way
to the intersection with Highway 84. If you get to Rossi Road or Pescadero
Beach, you've gone too far.
