Elkhorn Slough

Last week I spent a few hours out on boat on  an Elkhorn Slough Safari with friends from my volunteer organization, the EMQ Auxiliary.

Elkhorn Slough is one of California’s largest wetlands and part of a National Estuarine Reserve located in central Monterey Bay, California, just a short trip from the Monterey Peninsula and the Santa Cruz area.

On the Slough one sees a fantastic variety of wildlife such as playful sea otters, curious harbor seals, sea lions, hundreds of species of birds and so much more.  I had a wonderful time photographing the animals and birds!
