Cape Perpetua and Yachats
April 12, 2006
We left Eugene at 8:30 under familiar gray skies. As we approached the coast, the sky turned blue and a strange yellow orb appeared in the sky. Those with longer memories said it was the sun.
After arriving at Cape Perpetua Visitor Center we hiked to the Spouting Horn and to Devil’s Churn. The surf was high, giving us a good show.
We returned to the Visitor Center and drove to the top of Cape Perpetua to a sunny, scenic lunch spot, where we admired the views and looked for whales. After walking the loop trail to the rock shelter, we drove to Yachats and the 804 trail to finish an easy day of walking beside the sea.
After the trip we learned that our friend and companion on the trip, Max Brown, was doing his 300th Obsidian hike!
