June 29, 2015 Trinidad to Harris Beach State Park, 84 miles

Agate Beach from overlook

Out of the camper at 6:30 to a sunshiny morning. We enjoyed our morning coffee overlooking Agate Beach 

Along Rim Trail

and walking along the rim trail. 

Along the Rim Trail

Not sure I've ever awoke to such a beautiful morning at Patrick's Point, no sweat shirt necessary!

We left our campsite at 8:30 and parked by the trail head to Wedding Rock and Patrick's Point. 

Wedding Rock Trail

 Mark found the rock and ocean shots he wanted on the beach below Wedding Rock. While he was busy hunting and setting up shots I hiked to the top of Wedding Rock and out to Patrick's Point following the trail south back to the Rim Trail. We also stopped at Palmer's Point where the views are spectacular and you can hear the seal lions below. On a scale of 1-5 I give the trails in this park a 10! They are all gorgeous. Not sure how we missed all this when we were here 25 years ago, could have been because we were hauling along a 1 year old and 6 year old!

Left Patrick's Point area about 11 winding our way to Harris Beach State Park.

Arrived at Harris Beach State Park at about 2:15 after driving around Crescent City and past Pelican Bay Prison. Didn't find a whole lot to explore.

Coast from Site A 18

Mark went down to the beach shooting for a few hours while I relaxed from the mornings walks. The photo's view was from our site, A 18. All the sites in this row have great ocean views.

The "ice" cream man!

What a surprise it was at about 6:00 when the ice/ice cream man rolled by!

The amenities here are like staying in a Hyatt rather than a motel 6, in California. Shower rooms are heated and very clean, showers are free, bathrooms have hot and cold water in sinks and hand dryers. Our site was $29 with electricity and water. What does Oregon know about running State Parks that California doesn't?
