Just had to share this photo from OCT section hiker Rodney Hopkinson:
Recognize the design? From the official OCT logo. I love his attitude; he writes that he expects to "lighten the load, rarely take all the necessary camping gear, and if I end the night at Stephanie Inn in Cannon Beach, I will apologize to no one." Yes! It's your adventure!
He also thanked me for this blog and suggested I write a book. This might be a good time to reiterate that the new edition of my Day Hiking: Oregon Coast will include all the info in this blog (and more) and will be available from Mountaineers Books, I'm told, on October 1.
