Ozette Triangle Trail

Or first full day in Washington we headed out to the Ozette Triangle trail. This trail is part of the most western point of the US. The only way to get to the beach is to hike in.
Much of the trail is on these board walks.

There are huge cedar trees and lots of big ferns.
Huge slugs....blech.
And finally the beach...
We could hear sea lions hanging out on this small island.
What am amazing coast line.
Huge driftwood trees were on the beach. They were amazing.
Peek-a-boo!
Going up.....
Going down...
Sea glass...
This was a wonderful hike. It is about 11 to 12 miles. Our cell phone batteries died by the time we left the beach so I can't share with you some of the other sites that we saw. This is one of the top hikes that we have done. If you ever get out to the Olympic Peninsula this one is a must!

Thanks for traveling with me!

I always enjoy the adventures with Chris and Rich posts. The photo is fabulous, I can imagine how breathtaking in person. Well, the hike to get there would have taken my breath first.

Chris, can you believe that is one hike we have never done!!Last summer my knee kept us pretty much at home. Even now, I can only go for about a mile. I really hope next summer.....

Do you pull yourself up with that rope? Sounds like fun as long as the slugs aren't there. That is one humongous slug.

Love the sea glass, but not the slug! lol

I was amazed that the east and west coasts are SO different! Hold your 'mermaid tears' close to your heart.
