Hiking to The Wave, Part 2: Sand Cove
Since we had visited The Wave the first time back in November of 2012, we had learned that there was so much more in the area. Upon winning the lottery again this year, we vowed to test our endurance and navigation abilities to search out these special wilderness sites.
Armed with our new GPS application and the GPS track, our confidence increased and we were off.
Due to winter shadows on The Wave (and The Second Wave area), we opted to try the loop in reverse hoping for sun by the time we arrived. If you haven’t read our post regarding the first stop at the Boneyard, you won’t want to miss it.
After an hour exploring the Boneyard, we were a little disappointed when we stumbled upon our next stop: Sand Cove (literally stumbled upon as we were about to save our legs and go around the rock structure containing it).
So I tried making the lines work for me:
Overall, I was not inspired until I looked at Jeff’s shot of the Olympic Rock Race:
Supposedly, Sand Cove is best the late afternoon light, but we had places to go and could not wait. As you can tell, it is all about the light.
Onward to The Second Wave – could it really be as good or better than the original?
