After finishing a month long stay at Mt Hood for some summer shredding, I left for Tahoe in hopes of finding some relaxation and beach time, what I got were some photos of my drive down and some sunset shots at the beach with a few interesting things tucked in there.
I began heading towards the coast, arriving just in time for sunset.
I finished the night a few miles south at a campground, which was right near the beach, had some dinner near the shore and then zipped up my tent. The next morning, I woke up with the sun and began driving what has to be the best road in America. The PCH in Oregon is a winding, curvy elevated stretch of road on top of cliffs that hang out over the pacific coast. With ocean a few hundred feet below you directly off the right shoulder and tower cliffs above you on the left, you really can feel the rush of every turn.
The feature that stood out most to me was Cooks Chasm. It’s a giant gap in the cliff side where nature has eroded a chasm in the rocks below which extends underneath a bridge on the PCH.
After another few hrs on the coast, I headed inland and found myself in Tahoe by the end of the day. The next day I headed to the beach with some lovely French girls who were driving cross-country for the summer. I got to work on my French (learned a few phrases to get by 4 years of French class in middle and high school) and watch the sun go down with some interesting foreground objects .
The next day we went back to the same “secret” beach in South Lake and captured some Canadian geese and some more rays, then I headed to north lake for an evening on the rocks (no joke) of speedboat beach… Rough life, I know!
Finally I caught up with this rad little dude:
He was pretty skeptical of me at first, but then warmed up to the camera. All and all it was an amazing trip with lots of cool visuals. Very stoked I brought my camera.
