I took an afternoon hike up Montara Mt, and some other hikers pointed out a whale, just south of Gray Whale Cove. Then I stopped at the old mine shaft, headed up the rocks, on to the top, and then down one of the mountain biker trails to the saddle. A very nice day. This the first time I've seen a whale from on land. We've been told we should be able to see quite a few towards March.
