Cape Flattery and Neah Bay

We decided to take advantage of a nice sunny day, so we took a 3-hour drive to Neah Bay.  It's situated on the Makah Indian Reservation.  We had breakfast at a the Warmhouse Restarurant.  At the restaurant we purchased an annual pass to gain access to the Indian Reservation Lands.  A short drive from Neah Bay is Cape Flattery.  Cape Flattery is located on the most North-Western tip of the Continental United States.  We took the easy hike on Cape Flattery Trail.  It's only 3/4 mile, but it was really nice.  The trail winds it's way through a Sitka Spruce Tree forest.  A lot of the hike is on a cedar plank and cedar stump walkway that was created to avoid sloshing through the mud.  It was really built well, and seems to belong in the forest.  Along the way, there were several lookout observation decks.  At the end of the trail was an observation deck that had a spectacular view of Tatoosh Island and the Cape Flattery Lighthouse.
