Andy on the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry, quite happy to finally be underway
Kevin: A Hero's Lunch!
Andy: Almost ready to go...
Andy: let's rock and roll.
Kevin: seriously ready to go.
Kevin & Andy: at the trail head
Kevin & Andy: Really happy to be at the trail head.
Andy: beach gets the thumbs up.
Third Beach: perfect place to camp and watch the sunset. Not quite as secluded as one would want, but still lovely.
Andy, looking into the future.
Kevin: that grin says “I love the Pacific North West”
Andy navigating the first of many headlands.
Creative Walking. Obviously this is about the easiest hiking you'll ever do. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for the rest of the trip.
Scott's Creek: The view from our tent.
Kevin @ Scott's Creek
Kevin: The most *awesome* beach chair ever. We met the designer of the chair, who apparently is a master at perfecting lumbar support.
Kevin, enjoying the sunset.
Andy, enjoying the sunset even more.
Kevin: Is this not the most beautiful day ever?
The next morning, we started out on what would be a 13 mile hike.
Kevin, enjoying the beginning of a wonderful day.
Andy, shooting guns at the ocean.
This little guy was crawling ont he beach with us. I have no idea what it is.
Wooden “ladder” north of Toleak Peak. We climbed a few of these. They're not as intimidating as they look.
Kevin, onward and upward.
You can see our tracks in the sand if you look closely.
You can see that we don't walk in straight lines.
The cooles fungus I've ever seen.
The decent to Jefferson Cove. The pictures that are missing between this one and Toleak point include a side trip along the beach at Mosquito Creek which ended in a dead end (high tide) and a whole, whole, whole lot of rainy hiking.
Andy: One thumb down for the rain. The other for high tide.
Kevin: Soaked on the outside, warm and cozy on the inside.
Andy & Kevin, after waiting 2 hours for the tide to go down so we could move on.
Andy & Kevin: thumbs up to the fun and the hiking
Andy & Kevin: thumbs way down to the weather and the tide.
The headland that blocked our progress for another hour or two, waiting on the tide.
This beach was impassble until the tide went down.
Andy “shitboot” Klepack, thumbs up for making it safely and heading home. Despite it all, we had a great trip.
