Description - The Monterey Bay Shoreline Guide by Jerry Emory
A reference to the Monterey Bay shoreline - part of the California coast. Beginning in the north with Point Ano Nuevo and ending some 120 miles to the south at Point Sur, Jerry Emory provides a guide to the natural, cultural, and historical riches of the greater Monterey Bay shore. Six regional maps provide detailed information for visitors exploring by car, bike, public transportation, or on foot. Highlights of the area include the elephant seals of Ano Nuevo; surfing in Santa Cruz; the Monterey Bay Aquarium; and the coastal mountains of Big Sur. The coast offers beaches and dunes, tidepooling and birding, glimpses of sea otters, monarch butterflies, and gray whales on their migrating paths, redwood forests and agricultural landscapes, vineyards, parklands, literary landmarks, and towns and cities to explore. Monterey Bay's human history includes coastal Indians, Spanish missionaries and Mexican rancheros.
