USA: Monterey Bay, Yosemite and north

West of Yosemite - September 7, 2008

This was mainly for seabirds out of Monterey Bay. But I managed to fit in my favourite haunts such as Moss Landing as well as first time visits to places like Yosemite NP, and and many smaller Wildlife Refuges such as Merced National Wildlife Refuge and north to Bodega Bay.

I will write more about the trip, but below are a few pictures from it:
