Trek to Cape Flattery

We had a free weekend last summer and we decided to make the trek to Cape Flattery Washington. You can’t get anymore Northwest in the lower 48 than Cape Flattery.

The drive up there is beautiful. Minus the super windy road that made the dog upchuck. Still worth it.

So many cool spots to hit on the way there. This spot is right before mile marker 40 on Hwy 112. The Straight of Juan De Fuca Hwy is one of the most beautiful drives in Washington State.

You need to stop at the local store to pick up a Makah Recreation Pass so you can park at the Cape Flattery Trailhead.  It only sets you back ten bucks and is good for a year.

BOOM! Cape Flattery.

The trail down to the lookout is well maintained. There were plenty of places to sit and have a rest along the way. Not a bad trail with a cane or walking stick.

Motion in the ocean.

On the way home we looked for a sweet place to catch the sunset. Pillar Point Recreation Area was perfect.

The long day was well worth the good times and the great views.
