Point Lobos

Point Lobos Reserve near Carmel, CA
Photos by Kathy Hutman - July 2006

"The Point Lobos landscape is a mosaic of bold headlands, irregular coves and rolling meadows..."

"Half of the Reserve is all you see unless you're a diver and visit the underwater world just offshore. The underwater reserve owes its richness to strong northwesterly winds which prevail during spring and summer and which drive the surface water seaward. Near the coast cold mineral-rich water from deep below the surface moves upward to fill the void.

"Two water temperature zones meet and overlap on the California coast. Animals and plants from both warmer and colder waters are found here. The variety of animals is also enhanced by the Reserves proximity to very deep water. One mile north of the Reserve, this canyon measures 1,000 feet deep and continues to drop...joining with Monterey Canyon about 6 miles offshore at a depth of 7,000 feet."
