Cape Flattery & Neah Bay

Cape Flattery
We left early that day in anticipation of winding roads and a two lane highway from Sequim to Neah Bay. On a day of travelling, Pokie usually prepares breakfast and lunch beforehand. So in case we could not find anything interesting to try and eat, we always have something ready to eat. Breakfasts usually are on the road while we are driving, this will cut down a lot of time.

We skipped Sol Duc Hot Springs and Hoh Rainforest for our future travel; I think we had enough to see on this trip. We arrived in Neah Bay just after 10:00 AM,  I wanted to be the last destination, but Pokie pressed on to Cape Flattery (I am glad otherwise we will regret it later), then another dilemma, we still have to hike to see the most Northwest point of the US continent.

It started with an easy downhill trail, but soon it was more challenging for me, going downhill is more problematic than going uphill. The wooden trails are wet and slippery plus the roots of the trees are notorious to catch your footing if you are not careful. To say the least it was spectacular scenery, the fog just added to the beauty. Again pictures do not do any justice! The trial was three quarters mile down and another three quarters mile up. I was exhausted, but happy and content.
