Northwest most point in the contential US

After being home for over a week, the urge to hit the road again was overwhelming and a quick trip to the beach seemed to be the answer. Our favorite beach campsite is Hobuck beach at Neah bay. If you look at a map of Wa, it's West of Olympic National park, in the far North West corner of the state. Camp spots are within a few yards of the water, so the sounds of the surf are very relaxing. After a couple days there, it was time to move on, but not before winching a guy out of the sand. The entire area is owned by the Makah indian tribe, including miles of logging roads begging to be explored (legaly as long as you purchace a yearly permit from the tribe). Our mapping program showed lots of promising view points, so we set out to find a new campsite with a great view. It took a while, but we finally found the view of the year after driving down a road that pretty much was overgrown and nearly impassable. Still, a few pinstripes never stopped me and we were rewarded with a huge view of the Straights of Juan de Fuca, Vancouver island, and Neah bay. We spent the evening watching cruise ships , tugs and barges, navy vessels, fishing boats, tankers, car carriers, and more traveling in and out of the straights. I'm not sure it was legal to camp where we were, but there was no way anyone was going to find us. The next morning was socked in fog for a couple hours, but then it lifted and we decided to head to Port Townsend to catch the ferry back to Coupeville. All in all, it was a great, but short get away.
