Eerie Evening, Lost Coast Vista

This was taken off a bluff in the Sinkyone Wilderness, which is the southern Lost Coast of California. After hiking steeply through beautiful coastal forests we came to this scene, our first clear view of the Pacific. It was an eerie evening... very still, very mysterious. Maybe it was the screaming Sasquatch in the distance, I dunno. The price I paid for pausing in this meadow on the bluff was about 8 ticks crawling up my pant leg. This was the same evening we later found the shipwrecked vessel on the beach.
