Cape Flattery Pano 01-small.jpg
Cape Flattery A couple of years ago, while doing a series on the Pacific Coast Highway from Vancouver to San Diego, I ended up at the spectacularly beautiful Olympic National Park.
One night at dinner and a nice conversation with some local tourists I was told I just simply had to go and visit Cape Flattery as it is called. So, a day later and I ended up at the border of the Makah Nation Indian reserve.
The road stops and the Cape Flattery Trail begins. A fantastic half hour walk through an amazingly green cold Rain Forest. It’s like walking in the jungle but without the sweltering heat and sounds of very strange birds and animals that you can't see anyway.
And suddenly you're there: the most western tip of the US where massive Pacific waves slam into the rockface with a force so brutal the coastline changes constantly. It's one of those places that is best seen when it's a bit foggy. Gleaming leaves and damp trees just add to the spectacular views.
