Gray Whales with Views of Snow Covered Mountains

Today was cold in the 50’s with brisk wind with sunny skies and snow topped dusted mountains were in view as 12 whales crossed the Santa Monica Bay, some traveling quickly and others taking their time migrating at their own pace.  One pair crossed the bay and in tandem fluked to avoid hitting red floating debris at the surface. While one whale was tracked only by the large footprints left as it made its way north.
