Early Morning At Ballston Beach On Cape Cod.

“On March 9 of 2013 Atlantic Hurricane cut a 100-foot wide opening in the narrow barrier dune at Ballston Beach in Truro, on Cape Cod. Tons of seawater surged into the freshwater marshes of the upper Pamet River eventually reaching Route 6, and briefly turning the end of Cape Cod into an island.”

What an incredible story! I took this photograph from the summit above Ballston Beach on the Pamet Cranberry Bog Trail. You can see where the dunes were swept away and the water went inland.

Mother Nature always has her own way…

The Pamet Cranberry Bog Trail In Truro On Cape Cod!

The Pamet Cranberry Bog Trail in Truro has a huge diversification of things to see and explore. One of my favorite parts is hiking up and over the dunes toward the end of the trail. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

The views of Ballston Beach and the ocean are just spectacular!

It’s a great hike just out to the dunes and then back down. You won’t be disappointed!

Just last year the dunes on Ballston Beach eroded so much from the 2 Nor’easters that we had in the winter that one of the homes on Ballston Beach had to be taken down. It was a sad day.

I took this photograph from the lookout on the Pamet Trail where you can see where the dunes were washed away during the storm in 2013. It is just incredible what Mother Nature can do.

What an incredible story! I took this first photograph from the summit above Ballston Beach on the Pamet Trail. You can see where the dunes were swept away and the water went inland. I took the 2nd photograph a few weeks ago while walking on Ballston Beach with my son. It is expansive!

Mother Nature always does her own thing… incredible, at times!
