The two RV Gypsies (plus one) went to Cape Flattery and viewed Tatoosh Island, the lighthouse, sea caves, and sea otters and they were amazed at the beautiful scenery.

June 27, 2015

Cape Flattery is the northwestern most point of the contiguous United States. It is in Clallam County, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula, where the Strait of Juan de Fuca joins the Pacific Ocean. It is also part of the Makah Reservation, and is the northern boundary of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. Cape Flattery can be reached from a short hike, most of which is a boardwalk.

The western most point in the contiguous United States is at Cape Alava, south of Cape Flattery in Olympic National Park. However, the western most tip of Cape Flattery is almost exactly as far west as Cape Alava, the difference being approximately 5 seconds of longitude, about 360 feet at high tide and somewhat more at low tide.

Cape Flattery Trail is a moderate hike via a cedar plank boardwalk, some stepping stones, and a few rocky areas that provided views of the Tatoosh Island Lighthouse, the Pacific Ocean and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. There was no fee to hike the trail, but a Recreation Permit must be purchased to enter the Reservation.
