Certainly the highlight of this hike (and really, the reason for it) was seeing a monk seal sunning itself at the very, VERY tip of the island. I couldn't choose just one photo:) The first one demonstrates how well-camouflaged they are when lying on the rocks. We knew he was out there - we'd run into one of the Fish and Wildlife workers about five minutes prior and she told us where to look for him because he was quite hard to spot. Even with her directions we had a difficult time finding him. I was actually standing up on a pile of rocks taking these photos, and from here he appears to be in plain sight, but from the ground level not so much!
