Fantastic Mother's Day hike!
What a fantastic Day Hike we had on Mother's day. Very professional guides. We met at Black Sands Beach, Shelter Cove. We were shuttled up to the trailhead after receiving Mother's Day Flowers. We did the six-mile hike down the ridge to the beach. The guides had great energy and really knew their stuff about the wildlife, plants and trees and the history of the King Range. When we arrived at the beach we were served a hearty lunch. We watched the whales as they breached the surface of the water, their entire body flying out of the water. What an incredible experience. A true adventure... Can't wait for the overnight hike!!
