The Sea Lion Caves is what traveling along one of America’s highways is all about. Somewhere around the next bend is a little business that celebrates some miracle that visitors just can’t see anywhere else. The caves are home to several hundred Steller Sea Lions and off a pretty remarkable vantage point without being exploitive.
There are actually two spots to check out the sea lions. The first is from the top of a cliff. After a ride in an elevator, you arrive at the second, a spot deep inside the cliff itself.
The Sea Lion Caves makes for a perfect wide spot in the road. All totaled, we spent maybe about an hour there. We were back on the road and off to our next destination before we knew it.
