    A bit of the Hobbit-like trail through the brush near Boiler Bay. There are a couple of good trails along the Oregon coast like this, and my imagination always races a little when I get to travel them. I mean, anytime you have to crawl along on hands and knees, brush pressing in from three sides, you are likely on an adventure. And I dig adventures. A few other good spots include portions of the overland trail at Hug Point and portions of the Cape Falcon trail. I really need to get back out to that last one, been several years since my one and only hike on it.

      Love this photograph. It reminds me so much of the beach trail at Kalaloch along the washington coast. As a kid I dubbed it the "Alice in Wonderland Trail", even though its not very long it has three distinct landscapes one of which at the end of the trail near the beach is a dark moody forest devoid of underbrush and light followed by a tight passage much like the one you posted here to the beach. For a trail that is little more than just a short path between a campground and the ocean below it really captured my imagination and nurtured my love for the outdoors.

      Thanks for conjuring up such wonderful memories, a perfect way to spent a lazy sunday morning.
