The view you see is unexplainable. There are no words to discribe it all. So breathtaking. Hang on your hat or you will Lise it in the wind. Make sure to leave enough time to enjoy it all.

This is the place with a beautiful view and an attitude to go with it. As a policy, they don't answer the phone. You have to drive to Cape D'or and see if they're open. Chances are, during tourist season, they are. For dinner, It's...More
