Roadtrip 2019 Spring: Vancouver - Yakima - Bend - Rockaway Beach - Cannon Beach - Vancouver

Day 12 - Cape Lookout

Now here's one heckova business opportunity! Provided the Myrtlewood is included.

A real steamer of a storm – headed to Tillamook.

We hit the trail to Cape Lookout. The trees sport a thick mossy layer.

The forest is full of tasty tidbits for the attentive puppy.  That looks like stinging nettle.  I said, "attentive".

Fishin' can be a lonely thing.

Things are "greening up" in every direction.

It's the first time we've seen these gorgeous white/sometimes purple blooms. We think they're from the lily family – the plants are larger than the usual specimens.

They rate this trail easy to moderate – but today holds some special challenges – large sections are nothing more than enormous mud pits.

Wild roots systems sprawl across the trail – the pockets between the roots have also filled with water. Puddle jumping anyone?

Mud, glorious mud!

Ahh, a section you can just simply put one foot in front of the other and make progress. Despite conditions – it is a glorious rainforest walk.
