Valley of the gulls

It looks like a bare mountaintop:

With a long glacier, its river, and a dusting of snow on the slopes.

Except that it's not. It's a glacial erratic on the beach. The lower valley is at my eye height.

The "glacier" and "snow" are gull poop, the "forest" is seaweed. The light-coloured "rocks" are small acorn barnacles.

I want to go hiking there.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
