Coastal Lookout Point

Taken a few months ago. This is on the coastal trail south of Muir Beach. When you get down to the lower part of the trail shown here, there’s a sheer drop-off to the rocks and crashing waves about 500′ below. From there, there’s a further trail down to a lower point. It’s like being on the prow of a ship.

One Response to Coastal Lookout Point

  1. Spiritual spot for sure. Proposed to my sweetheart at a lookout at Jade Cove, Calif., similar spot, and on the moments I proposed a dolphin jumped, not far away, and as we sat down, right below our feet, say thirty feet down, an otter lay on her back, and smashed some food on her belly with a rock. The area was thick with Native American midden, and one could well imagine many proposals, marriages, perhaps births being committed right on the very spot many times. Still married with my fair Sweetheart, and of course to the ancient wisdom and beauty of such a spot.
