Beautiful photo, Larry. Looking at the thumbnail, I wondered whether there was enough to tie together the foreground and the background together, but looking at the photo, I think it works very well. The lighting is wonderful. Marilyn

Thanks Marilyn! It is difficult sometimes to tell just how a photo works from the thumbnail. I am sure I have missed some great photos by not opening them up, but with so many photos at Panoramio it is impossible to check them all out.

Anyway, there was a fine misty salt haze coming off the ocean and it greatly helped to soften the Little Hogsback. The gull did not wait long so I had to do a hurry up and shoot before it flew away.

Very good photo! I envy you. You have so many beautiful places in your neighbourhood.

Thanks Michał.

You are right, there are many beautiful places here.

Superb photo, Larry. That is one sheer cliff-face by the way, and still nature manages to have trees grow on the top.

Love that single gull sitting there, too.

Like Marilyn said, the foreground and background work very well together.

Cheers, Justin

Hi Larry; We may have talked about this before, but my kid was asking me about it again today. Back in the 1970's I cut shake bolts for Bill Adams, who went on to run the shake mill in Taholah. Some friends and I drove up the road towards the Raft River, and went to the beach and climbed a rock that might have been Little Hogsback. On top of the rock was an amazing little cabin that Bill told me was built by Jim Whittaker and/or members of his family. The climb up was pretty hairy-log ladders cabled to the rock as I recall? My girlfriend at the time was from NYC and not very outdoorsy yet but she made the climb which really impressed me! I believe the cabin had a sliding glass door and a woodstove which most likely were flown in by helicopter! Do you know anything about this cabin? Is it still there? Do you have any pictures of it? Sorry for all the questions, and double sorry if we've talked about this before! I told my kids about it when they were growing up, and they still occasionally ask about it! Thanks in advance, and if Bill is still around tell him Bruce Mountjoy says hello!
