If you are located in the Pacific Northwest, you know about the heat wave we’ve been having. Our current living situation (more details coming soon!) has AC (thank GOD) so we’ve been able to cope with this heat. Many of you may not have AC- When it’s hot it’s a good idea to get outside and find water. There are a lot of amazing water hikes in Oregon but, I do have a favorite when you need to escape the heat: Cape Lookout.
I love everything about the Cape Lookout hike (especially in the heat). It’s a very easy hike. Easy hikes are good in extreme heat because you won’t overextend yourself. It has some of the best views I’ve ever seen. You will find dramatic coastline views. I’ve even seen sea lions, coastal birds, and WHALES! You can’t beat a hike with whales can you? The hike is also (obviously) on the coast which usually is cooler than the Willamette valley. Next time you are trying to beat the heat or just want a stunning coastal hike. Try Cape Lookout. I promise you will love it.
