Crescent City Overnight 10/21-22/2019

A small group of hikers spent two perfect days hiking on the coast. We did the usual Mouth of the Klamath coastal hike on Monday afternoon, with lunch on Hidden Beach. The temperature hit over 70 degrees along the way. That night we enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Good Harvest and the Curley Redwood took good care of us as usual.

On day 2 we had breakfast across from the motel as usual then headed north to Oregon and Whale's Head Beach. We expected a hike through the dunes but found a coastal hike along cliffs in deep forest with lots of ups and downs. Half way we crossed Indian Sands which was at most 200 yards long. Eventually we came to our destination, Thomas Creek Bridge, the highest bridge in Oregon. 

The views along to way were simply spectacular and this 6 mile hike has more than enough work to make it interesting. Count on it being standard to future overnights. After the hike we gathered in Brookings for a pub lunch.

As Sabin Phelps declared at the end of the trip, this was a 10 out of 10 overnight.
