Cloaked Coastline

Yesterday we hiked up Cascade Head. Just north of Lincoln City, Oregon, Cascade Head remains undeveloped thanks to the efforts and investment of the Nature Conservancy. It is a coastal (and national) natural treasure.

A well maintained hiking trail ascends rapidly from a parking area to a meadow at the top of a finger of land jutting out into the sea. The trail is steep, not for the casual walker, but the view from the top is usually rewarding. Yesterday as we approached the higher meadow, a low fog rolled in from the sea.

This image looks south onto the Three Rocks promontory as the low sea fog quickly overtakes the continent's edge.
