Slacker Hill. Don't let the name fool you - it's anything but.

U.S. Coast Guard

I couldn't find any info on what the police activity was about.

A tad windy in spots today.

Atop Slacker Hill.

Only view today from Slacker hill, is view of the fog.

Blue sky!! However, it was short lived.

"A curse upon those who would come up here to trash this place - natives respect"

Watching the fog roll by. 

A whale!! 

We saw whales!! Three to be exact. :)
