FROM RIALTO BEACH TO CAPE FLATTERY
Foggy mornings, stony beaches, tide pools and kelp beds. What more could you want? Northwest Washington coast ROCKS (quite literally).
Hole in the wall @ Rialto Beach is only accessible at low tide.There were lots of tide pools to explore.
This striped rock was once a sea stack. Now it's worn down to a broad stoop on the beach.

Cape Flattery is a rugged stretch of coastline that sits where the Strait of Juan de Fuca meets the Pacific Ocean. Kelp is pounded against the cliffs in constant rhythm. It is the northwestern most point of land in the lower forty-eight states.
A series of boardwalks winds through the woods and out to the edge of the cliff where a few hundred feet below the ocean churns.
Sunset on the Pacific is always special- when the sun shines, the fog disappears.
