Last week, we spent our days exploring the island's many natural wonders. One of the most spectacular is the Aquinnah Cliffs which we admired from the observation deck near Gay Head Light.
For an even better view, we headed over to nearby Moshup Beach, a destination for geologists and beach enthusiasts alike.
Moshup Beach offers stunning views of the Aquinnah Cliffs. Composed of 150- feet of sediment from six glaciers, they are made up of red and white clays, green sands, white quartz, black organic soil and lignite.
Protected as a National Historic Landmark, the cliffs are truly spectacular. My photos don't nearly do them justice.
Another day, we felt energetic and hiked MV's Menemsha Hill Reservation.
Its longest trail led us up Prospect Hill, the second highest peak on the island, then down to a remote rocky beach with commanding views of Menemsha Village and the Elizabeth Islands.
Just like last year, Jacob climbed onto the beach's largest bolder.
So beautiful. Martha's Vineyard rocks!
