Cape Perpetua

October 14, 2006

This trip was a combination of three short hikes. The first one took us from the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center up to the Cape Perpetua lookout. It's a vigorous climb through a beautiful coastal forest. It's about half a Mt. Pisgah in elevation gain and length. We descended and then hiked the much easier old growth Giant Spruce Trail to the enormous old Spruce that one can crawl through. We returned to the Visitor center, looked around, ate our lunches and then headed for the tidepools and the dramatic Devil's Churn. The tide was low, so we had to look further down for the tidepool creatures. The Devil's Churn wasn't as wild as it is at high tide, but one could walk further back and see the full extent of the channel it's creating. Zella took some great photos of this trip.
