One of the famous landmarks on this trip was Palisade Head. Its rocky cliffs were formed by a lava flow over one billion years ago. The highest point of Palisade Head is over 300 feet above the water. Peregrine Falcons nest on the Palisade Head cliffs. It’s also a favorite destination for rock climbers and we did see a couple of them during this trip.
Toward the end of September, Diana and I made our annual fall visit to the North Shore. This year we took a boat trip from the Silver Bay Marina to Shovel Point and back. We saw many scenic rocky coves like this one.
This is an interesting rock formation. I wonder if the triangular piece will eventually erode away and leave a cave at the water line. Of course, that would take many thousands (maybe millions) of years.
