We escaped to the Olympic peninsula for three days this week. Here are a few glimpses – more later –
Top: A map of the northwest tip of the continental US, posted on the wall of a restaurant on the Makah Reservation in Neah Bay, WA. With helpful tips!
Next: Curley’s, a fisherman’s hotel, and the marina, in Sekiu, WA.
Next: Morning fog lifting off the marina in Sekiu.
Next: A Glaucous-winged gull, like a Herring gull, but without the black wingtips, these are common on the west coast.
Next: Sea stacks at Shi Shi Beach, Olympic National Park. Reached by walking two miles through Makah reservation land, then descending a steep cliff to the shore with the aid of a rope. Worth it!
Next: Beach detritus, always fascinating. And trash is rare here.
Bottom: Olympic Peninsula hills receding into the mist at Pillar Point.
