Take Cape Flattery Road for 8-miles to the Cape Flattery Trail. The half-mile walk leads north westernmost point of the contiguous U.S. where the Pacific Ocean feeds the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The smell of the ocean permeates the air, bull kelp dance in the waves, and the water glistens a brilliant blue green. Listen to sea lions barking from Snake Rock and the sound of waves crashing into, and carving the cliff sides. Gulls and eagles soar with the winds, while puffins and oyster catchers fish. Bring binoculars to observe birds and see the lighthouse on Tatoosh Island — and a jacket as the temperature can change quickly. Simply breathtaking, there is something magical about being at the edge of Washington state.
