Sea lion caves

Hiked out after a very long nights sleep with ear plugs for the wind. The happy valley trail is soft needles and wide. It might be the over grown old coast highway. And level. Its 1 1/2 miles then crosses over to west of 101 on the Hobbit trail and another 1 1/2 miles of up and down but still nice trail to Haceta Head lighthhouse. It is a working lighthhouse with a b&b keepers house.

Then we tried to hitch thru the tunnel of death. We even made a sign, but after 20 minutes we turned on the bike light and ran through it. Only on log truck came through at the same time a car from the other side. Lots of northbound traffic.

We stopped at the Sea lion Caves and ate a Stellar hot dog. The sea lions were making a huge racket.

Then more road walk till we got to lilly lake. The wind picked up and tje soft sand of the dunes was hard work. We waded one last insult of a creek to soak our feet and then up through knee deep soft sand to the road to Florence.

We walked a mile and happened upon a group of arizona navajo who hired a taxi. Matt drove us to the post office. I went to safeway and stocked up. Then a real steak dinner in old town.
