    • With good weather and convenient timing for low tide, we were able to complete the hike in about 2.5 days. That was with a reasonably hard effort but nothing too grueling (other than for my frail knees which were toast for a week afterwards). And, we managed to pretty much avoid poison oak, tics, twisted ankles, sneaker waves and other perils we'd been warned of. Not quite on a par with an ultra runner we heard about who recently completed all 50 miles of the trail in something like 12 hours. Sounds like a good challenge for Chris.

    • The Lost Coast is amazing with its rugged beauty. Almost a step back in time too.

    • This is one of my favorite areas of Northern California but I'm usually riding through rather than hiking. Thank you for showing me another side of the lost coast. Your pictures are beautiful and I am glad you had a good journey through the area.

    • Spanish Flat always delivers! I've hiked there almost twice (helicopter took me north to Arcata before I could reach it the first time), and I long to return. And yes, the approaching tide will weigh heavy on your mind, if you're not up on the bluffs.
