We left early from the RV Park for a day trip to Cape Flatterly.
Now, as you can tell from the push pin, Cape Flatterly is the farthest northwest point you can go in the lower 48 states.
To get there we traveled for almost 3 hours through Port Angeles and Neah Bay to the Makah Indian Reservation.
We arrived at the trail head, but before heading out on the half mile hike, we decided to have lunch. So we brought out the sandwiches, chips, and fruit we packed this morning. In just a little while, we were ready to head down
the trail. Never did I expect what I saw. As we started our hike,
the trees and ferns lined the path on both sides and seemed to
crazy trees. And, we saw some
really big trees. But, the real treat was at the end of the trail, where
the Strait of Juan de Fuca meets
the Pacific Ocean. Breathtaking is all I can say.
Straight across from the tip of Cape Flatterly was
Tatoosh Island. And beyond there and through the haze is
Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
What an awesome day, and one
we won’t soon forget.
