Escaping to paradise

It's been dreadfully hot here.  The afternoons and evenings are not fit for life.  So we drove to the coast for a hike at Cape Lookout.  It was paradise.  I couldn't stop smiling.

This is the very start of the trail and most of it is in the trees like this...

With views of the ocean like this



Cape Lookout is a 2 mile spit of land made by lava flows; the cliffs are 800 feet high.  Here is a photo of the spit.  When you are hiking it feels like you are deep in a forest.


It's not our first time on Cape Lookout but it's been a while since we hiked there.  You can see lots more photos of Cape Lookout on Google Images.

Beautiful place. There's nothing like getting back to nature. Calms my mind for sure.
