Point Lobos State Natural Reserve

Our Airbnb host recommended Point Lobos, and it did not disappoint. We really enjoyed a late afternoon walk along the coastal trails.

There were lots of cool coves and inlets along the path. High tide came in while we were walking, and caused some big surges against the cliffs. If my catchphrase in Wyoming was “hey bear!”, here it’s “never turn your back on the ocean!”

China Cove and some other areas were closed to protect the sea lions and harbor seals.

The Cypress Grove has neat trees that are all gnarly and twisted. We saw a group of deer right next to the trail!

We ended the day with a trail that led to Bird Rock and watched pelicans fly across the sunset. If you are in the Monterey area, definitely take a trip to Point Lobos!
