Pacific Ocean

One of the big things on this trip was to get to see the Pacific ocean. We planned on making a quick trip down to the ocean and then heading back home. However, once we got there, we stayed a lot longer than anticipated.

We started out going through the Quileute Indian town of La Push, which is where we got a glimpse of the ocean from a harbor. We then backtracked to our real destination, First Beach. It is about a 1½ mile hike to the beach. Steep, but definitely worth it. As you can tell, it was almost deserted.

One of the interesting things was the offshore islands. They where not flat like I was expecting, but very tall. It appears that they were carved from the mainland at some point.
