Some pictures from Tuesday’s epic hike.
The sun had not yet dipped down to the line of the horizon when I set out. It was still nearly full light.
As I got farther and farther down the coast, the mist rolled in. The sun behind the mist gave the sky the eerie color of pre-storm.
The beach is beautifully designed in patches by wind and water eddies.
A striated rocky cliff emerged from the mist eventually. This tree topped craggy peninsula extends far out into deep ocean, where a lighthouse strobe flares continuously. From where I stood, the lighthouse was not visible.
It was time to turn around…
and make my way through the mounting dark….
…following the lights toward home.
