Does a missing word come to mind in the title of this post? Well, to start off here’s a rock.

Guess that’s the old Highway 1 in front of the rock near Mugu, but in the contest with engineers the rock seems to have won. Looks like there were some great pullouts there for tourists and lovers, but now all the action is around the white catering truck with blue awning at the upper right. Next some rocks circling a circular structure surrounded by “beehive” huts in homage to ancient peoples’ village life.

Further past Mugu if you combine rocks and a big bank roll, you can put a beautifully curved mansion on the water like this.

Last up tonight, a hard place with a scary name. Well, it sounds scary aloud but on the chart it’s just Point Dume. There is a nearby invisible line pilots must not cross though. It’s the restricted airspace for jets taking off from LAX that passes just a few hundred yards past this rock. No jets ever fly there, but it’s a hard rule regardless.

So to fly low there for a good look you have to fly offshore to avoid annoying people on the beaches and trails, but close enough to shore to avoid the hard and fast LAX airspace. Carefully flying between the rock and the hard place, you get this nice view of Point Dume with no downside.
