A fantastic day for a hike, slightly less windy than the previous day, and the sun was shining!

Playin' on the beach near the trailhead:

And off we go, not without a warning first!:

Puoli Vali means "halfway along the journey" in Finnish. Gold panning used to take place on the beach in the 1930's. At this canyon the trail decends the ridge to the beach, crosses a bridge, and gradually climbs 'lost canyon' to the top of the ridge again.
