You can see "sweet man" half way up the second set of steps, he kept going when I stopped to snap a few pictures. It was absolutely gorgeous & we were the only ones walking the trails today so it was very peaceful.
The view from the top is breath taking & the roar from the pounding waves got louder & louder as we neared the lake. The waves today were pretty big maybe about 3-4 footers with a good stiff wind blowing in our faces. In the last picture you can see the final challenge, once down by the water you have only one way back, which is up allllll those stairs in the last picture. I forgot just how many steps there are all total I think over 700. I have always said, if you can make it all the way to the lake & back to the parking lot you can walk just about any where with no problem. It is a real work out for sure. This was the first time I did it this year, & "sweet man" is on his second time already for this year.... I think we are on a fitness kick at least for today...the whole walk is only 7 tenths of a mile each way, but gives one a sense of accomplishment to complete it & it is a good workout. No treadmill for me today, this was enough...Time well spent with my favorite friend.
