At the end of July, I took a small road trip around the Olympia Peninsula, visiting several sites in the Olympic National Park. One of my first stops was Cape Flattery, the northwestern most point in the contiguous United States. The cape overlooks where the Strait of Juan de Fuca joins the Pacific Ocean. It’s located on the Makah Reservation and is considered sacred land. Unfortunately, the coast was too socked in to see Tatoosh Island and the Cape Flattery lighthouse, just off the tip of the cape.
If the coast wasn’t so socked in, you’d be able to see Tatoosh Island and the Cape Falletry lighthouse beyond this windswept Sitka spruce.
