This was a new hike for me.
I led this trip several years ago, but the loop did not exist then.
Under partial sun and clouds we hiked out to the beach for lunch.
We enjoyed no wind and balmy temperatures.
On the loop back through the wood we enjoyed a mild rain.
The highlight of this trip was the mushrooms growing along the trail —
every color and many different types and sizes.
No reference books, so not many were identified.
The other addition was the amazing number of salamanders along the trail.
Great time of the year to hike this trail.
Hikers were Ravin Calloway, Steve Hilieg, Bobbie Kalbfleisch. Velma Shirk
and Jane Hackett (leader).
