It was a beautiful day at the coast yesterday.
We stopped at Ecola State Park and decided to do an "easy" 2.5 mile hike. Easy was the phrase used in our guide but whoever thinks a 1.25 mile ascent is easy might be a little nuts. Needless to say, I was a bit worn out but knowing the other half was downhill kept me going. Matt and Lavi were fine. I guess having four feet makes a difference.
Next we went to Haystack rock to look for nesting tufted puffins. Unfortunately they nest on the ocean side of the rock but we did get to see some as they flew around.
Lavi also met a nice fisherman...
And suprisingly another type of puffin that isn't usually found here in Oregon.
