Olympic National Park and Cape Flattery

A while ago, Seth saw some absolutely amazing pictures of Jeremy’s taken of Cape Flattery and Neah Bay in Washington. We decided we HAD to see this incredible place for ourselves.

After our fabulous ferry ride from Seattle, we drove through Bainbridge Island and through the Olympic National Park. The mountains are majestic, thick with evergreen trees, and green, green, green. On our way out to the cape, we had to stop by picturesque Lake Crescent to snap a few pictures.

Cape Flattery is the most northwestern point of the United States; to get there, you take an easy 1 to 1.5 mile hike out to the overlook. Wear good shoes you don’t mind getting muddy as the terrain is wet.

(A note to my tongue-in-cheek stylist: These pants are supposed to be capris, but I’m really short, so they ended up looking like highwaters.)

We hiked through the rainforest before we arrived at the cape at sunset. This is what we saw. No joke.

Right off the cape was the most perfect little island with the most appropriate lighthouse.

    Carrie & Seth,

    I LOVE the pictures!!!! ANd I love seeing you happy in them. You are missed and I think of you all the time.

    As far as apple products go, I’m feeling like at some point, Care, you need to get me up to speed with all this technology stuff. I think I could really have it be working for me, but I don’t even know where to begin!!!
