Tatoosh Island


The most northwestern point of the contiguous states of the U.S. is Cape Flattery. From the observation point on Cape Flattery, you get this view of Tatoosh Island, Cape Flattery Lighthouse, and the Pacific Ocean. You also get some beautiful views of rugged coastline, and the company of some of the wildlife.
My husband and I made the trek to Cape Flattery this weekend. After driving to the upper coast and onto the Makah Reservation, it's a hike from a parking area that is a lot of up and down, some boardwalk, some stepping rounds (slices of logs) and a lot of roots to avoid. I'll be posting some more pictures this week of the trek to Cape Flattery, and the amazing scenery we saw at the most northwestern corner of the contiguous U.S.

What a stunning shot! Love that you can see the lighthouse, too. I am a lighthouse lover and I definitely don't get to see as many as I would like.

Girl, you should spring for a telephoto lens - I would love to see what you do with it!

Thanks for the comments! We took a lot of photos, and this one showed the whole island, and some of the sense of distance to it.
My camera has a zoom on it, and I used it, just not on this picture. I'll be posting more photos from Cape Flattery - there's too much that's pretty there to only post one photo.
