Notes from the Trip by
The La Push coastal area at the mouth of the Quileute River in Clallam County, Washington is the north most point of Washington’s pacific coast beaches. It is also home to the Quileute tribe. The tribe is kind enough to share their home with surfers and nature lovers who come for the un-crowded beaches and natural beauty. The only real way out there is by car on the scenic 101.
We stayed at the Quileute Oceanside resort in their ocean-side cabins. I often camp at La Push and meals are made on camp-stoves and over fires. In this case we were lucky enough to have a cabin with all of the amenities we needed to cook inside. Locals will let you know where to surf when you arrive. I will say that for me personally that area is very calming. The Quiluete people have a strong spiritual and mythological connection to the land and I can understand why. It's pretty close to the Seattle and yet couldn't be further away from it. The lush temperate rainforest is filled with wildlife and there is plenty of room to spread out and explore. It's a real treasure.
