Since Argosyodyssey was last updated, much has transpired. So here I sit blogging our latest days.
We have travelled from the casino Northward to Forks Wa. This is the town that author Stephanie Meyer chose as the setting for the Twilight novels, and boy are they proud of it! We found a campsite tucked back along the river, off of forest service rd twenty nine. It is in the Olympic National Forest. Moss hangs off of the trees as if we were in the bayou. Moss even coats the concrete forest service rd in between tire tracks. This is supposed to be one of the rainiest locations in the US, but we haven’t seen much more than a heavy fog. We have visited Ruby Beach and Rialto Beach here close to Forks.
We have seen a plethora of animals but have been unable to catch them clearly in photos. To help you spot them, I have kindly annotated the photos for you.
Next we went to Cape Flattery, so named by James Cook who wrote in 1778 : “… there appeared to be a small opening which flattered us with the hopes of finding an harbour … On this account I called the point of land to the north of it Cape Flattery.” It is the most northeast point in the contiguous United States! On the way, we stooped and picked through the tidepools at shipwreck point, and then entered the Makah indian reservation to get to Cape Flattery and ShiShi beach. Where we saw the seal, the whale, and a bald eagle! What a beautiful view!
so tomorrow we saddle up and head to oregon to continue town hunting and to get cate to the world dahlia fest in Camby Oregon this weekend! So there you have it, til next time…peace!
