A windless, overcast day greeted
Carolyn and Cork Higgins at the Oregon coast.
We parked at Cummins Creek, hiked along the old Oregon Trail
to Cape Perpetua Visitors Center where eagle-eyed Jack pointed
out two gray whales traveling north just outside the surf.
From there we hiked along Cook’s Ridge, impressed by
the giant Sitka Spruce and old growth hemlock.
After a mist-threatened short lunch we looped back to the car
along the Gwynn Creek Trail.
The return trip home was in bright sunshine, a great ending
to a great day.
