Ruby Beach Title  

Ruby Beach was our next stop and it was one of the places I really wanted to see. There is a nice parking lot and then it is a steep climb down the trail but it is not far and not overly strenuous, however, my knees let me know I had been on a climb by the time I got back to the car.

When you get to the bottom of the hill just realize the toughest part of the whole climb is getting from the trail over the pile of driftwood on the beach. Once done it is then a tricky walk along the beach because it is not sand but medium sized river rock.

Stick with it because it is well worth the minor obstacles to spend some time here.

I really wanted to get a drone flight in but for some reason I could not get the compass to calibrate properly so I had to pass.
