Jack's Peak

We had another beautiful Saturday with no rain, so we made it to Jack's Peak. We really are in a great location because we have the beach only a ten minute walk away and this mountainous terrain only a ten minute drive away.

There are several different trails all around the park. The first one we went on was the skyline trail and it took us along the edge where we could look out and see the bay. It was quite a sight.

There were a few logs that were down and James couldn't resist walking out on them. It is hard to tell in this picture, but he is way out over the edge. It definitely made me nervous, but I'm sure the view was incredible from there.

We even spotted this red mushroom of unusual size. I've never seen anything like it before.
Here is where we somehow lost the trail, but our trusty guide eventually brought us back to the marked path.

Don't worry, this tree was not over a cliff, or there would be no way Ethan would be out there.
