5~ July Trip 2014

After that long, steep and amazing hike...
we headed over to see the 


This is an easy walk on a man-made trail.
The Boy and his Girl lead the way

The trail starts out very unassuming,
but when you get there...ahhh!

We were told that this is the only waterfall 
that feeds directly into the ocean off California, 
however there is also Alamere Falls
further North.

Anyway, this trail was thick with tourists like us, but what I noticed was that everyone was happy.  This was true on the hiking trail of the previous post too.

There is much to be said about being with nature.
It's good for us humans.

We see the cove and the waterfall!

Beautiful views

Standing in this open area, reading the informational signage,
one only has to look to the South (to the Falls) and the North to this view below
to begin dreaming.

Looking North at the rugged coastline

There is nothing like this coast, like the ocean hues here, the trees, the cliffs...the everything.

On the rocks
OK, folks that is it for this part of the trip.
A few more stops before we must head home.
Hint: A beach of little rocks!

Thanks for coming along with me.
