Fun post-Thanksgiving hike with the family. Weather was perfect and the hike was just about right. The hike description speaks of the trail as being "very faint" and of "bushwhacking, boulder-hopping, confusing cairns going the wrong way," but I think those descriptions are out-dated. The trail is now well-defined, clear, and marked with sufficioent cairns to guide the novice.

Anyway, fun little hike. The cave is quite spacious--bigger than I imagined. There is a hive of bees that have taken up residence in the rock at the base of the cave directly below the "wave." Accordingly, best to visit in the morning when it's cool and the bees are not yet active.

My 77-year-old mother in law joined us. She needed some help with balance here and there, but is in great shape for her age.
