Comments:
Much of the area is old slide area. West of 101 ODOT put a gravel pile on it years ago. There is and has been large cracks all along the slope.
Summary:
Water lapped slowly against huge bolders poking out of the fog. A few oyster catchers were silouited as they searched the exposed monoliths. I'm trying not to think about the long climb back to the road or tiptoeing around the poison-oak. Just scramble up the slope of dirt as it meets this batch of large bolders. We saw no other humans, only a bit of garbage and one sealion.
