Not sure why this thread was revived but in case anyone is wondering, the point is currently open and has been for a couple months.

Sorry my feeble attempt at staying on topic failed for you. Would you like me to start a new thread?

Hearing the Point is closed this morning, May 15 this year, reason unknown but am sure it is for a non
threated species of bird. I am hearing they *may* establish a pedestrian walkway. Angry smiley

I am posting the copy and paste from the NPS website while resisting the urge to express any personal opinions on tax dollars used to pay the salaries of the NPS employees to watch for movement of a baby bird.

"Ramp 44 (Priority Ramp)
-North: Open to ORVs

Hours: ORV route is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
-South: Open to ORVs for 0.20 miles. Cape Point is currently not accessible using an ORV. A portion of Cape Point remains open to pedestrians via bypass road (approximately a quarter mile walk from the northern protection buffer boundary).

Hours: ORV route is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
A protection buffer that was installed in April to protect three American oystercatcher eggs was expanded on May 15 to protect an American oystercatcher chick (other eggs haven't hatched yet). Staff will continue to monitor the movement of the chick and make adjustments to the protection buffer accordingly."

This is one of the main reasons we left HI in 2012.

Too many unknowns, too much beach closed for too long.

Between spring birds and summer turtles, we found ourselves many times packed into a cul-de-sac.

I miss the good old days.....

One has to wonder if future generations will watch as the NPS prohibits human activity to save the fire ant, the starlings, the murder hornet, africanized bees, the grackle, kudzu, mayflies....

Speaking of Mayflies...I crossed the WMB last night after dark, OMG the mayflies covered the windshield to the point that I had to stop at a carwash. They sounded like rain hitting the windshield! Confused
