Happy Birthday to Mike’s mom Tina. Who looks younger than Mike 🙂
Since june 5th, we’ve traveled almost 4,000 miles. That’s a little more than two weeks. That’s way too many miles at one time! that doesn’t include the week before when we went from hampton, VA to the mountains of NC then down to south florida. More on that later.
The drive from La Push to Cape Flattery is a little over 60 miles, but it takes about 2 hours to get there. It’s slow going on winding roads, however you ride parallel to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. That land you see on the other side of the water is Canada
I walked down to a tide pool area to quickly explore. What are these things? They kind of look like a cross between a shell and a sand dollar. I don’t know what they are but they were everywhere and pretty cool looking.
The Cape Flattery trail is only .75 miles but it seems a little longer as you wind thru huge trees and walk on wooden bridges. This is what you see at the end of the trail. I thought it was going to take you down to the ocean but you’re high up on the cliffs.
There are several unofficial overlooks that stop at the very edge of the cliff. No guardrail, no anything. If you fall, you die. eek! So the boys were in a down relaxing far from the edge. That way I could walk around and look without having to worry about them. Can you spot them? Sometimes they blend so well that people don’t even know they are there.
This is what the wooden bridges look like. Pretty cool. Luckily it was dry and not slippery.Also lucky that is was dry so we could pull off when people were approaching. Definitely not enough room to pass, especially with dogs.
