To get to the cove we left camp and climbed the eastern side of scorpion canyon (opposite side as yesterdays hike) and walked along the bluffs overlooking the ocean with stunning views of Anacapa island.

|Not the softest beach|
The bluffs plunged directly into the ocean mostly, but occasional a rocky beach could be spotted. The terrain is primarily dry grassland with some small shrubbery. The island originally had nearly impenetrable vegetation, but the sheep brought in by ranchers profoundly altered the island's vegetation.
|A look inland|
The bay reminded me of a tropic island. The water was almost clear blue, and the air was fresh and warm. This picture below demonstrates how big the island is... notice the other side of Santa Cruz island in the background.
