This day was timed to take the beach route at low tide vs. taking the inland forest path.
Love these log crossings
And this was typical even after a stretch of dry days
Go straight up the middle
Watch your feet

Quick video vignettes: two panoramas, approach to a surge channel. I fell on slippery algae by the sea cave…small head bump, nothing serious.
Tree stand at the Strait of de Juan Fuca…that’s the United States on the horizon.
