Hiking to Chetco Point (Pictures)

Friday, June 01, 2012

In April I was in Oregon at our Condo where we have a great view of Chetco Point.


On the day I hiked it was cool and misty; about 60 degrees with occasional light showers, but I love hiking in weather like this...a far cry from the 104 degrees today in Scottsdale.

Last August I hiked to the Point walking along the beach from the Condo. The distance is shorter, but much more challenging as the Point can only be accessed at low tide . That trip involved a lot of climbing boulders, but the biggest challenge was climbing up the side of a cliff until I could climb up on the bridge in this picture.


So, this hike involved going through town along RailRoad Avenue until I saw the sign for Chetco Point. I followed the road past nice homes until I reached this sign which was not very encouraging.

I proceeded and was treated to some amazing ocean views.




I also loved seeing the wild flowers very fresh after a light sprinkle.



This hike took a little over an hour and I felt really exhilarated when I got back to the Condo.
