Cape Flattery


I have always heard of the beauty of Cape Flattery (Neah Bay, WA.) but I wasn't prepared for the magnificence of this place.  Cape Flattery is the uppermost NW tip of the united states.

The trail is about a 30 minute hike.  These boardwalks make it magical.



caves are so mysterious.





We totally lucked out with temperatures of 50 degrees and sun.  It's been down pouring here for weeks.  Even the drive to Neah Bay that morning was so windy and rainy, our windshield wipers were on super fast mode.  But we rounded the corner into Neah Bay and the sun came out.



breathtaking!

  8. Teesha, we have a walkway like that here in BC. It's off the coast of the island and you have to take a charter boat to get to it. When you get to the end of the boardwalk, you arrive at a natural hotsprings. From the pics I have seen, it's quite beautiful.

    Isn't the west coast just spectacular? I love me my mountains and ocean. *happy sigh*

  9. Wonderful pics Teesha. I missed seeing this magical spot when I lived in Washington State oh so many years ago. I so loved the Puget Sound and the green. The deepest greens I have ever seen are in the Pacific NW region. Thanks for sharing. :)

  10. Breath-taking! Thanks for sharing.
    Have to disagree with early comment that says midwest is ugly now. ;-) I've learned to appreciate all seasons.
    But compared to the dramatic views you've shown us, I can feel envious.

  13. I lived in SedroWoolley WA for six months when I was fifteen and I still think the northwest part of the state is the most beautiful place I have ever been. I hadn't seen Neah Bay - it's breathtaking. Thank you for sharing.
