This is one of those places that is hidden from most of us. A place were the sounds and the sights are pure and your mind is free to wonder and imagine. I got to the Makah Reservation midday and it was the Memorial Day weekend & the opening of halibut season. I was sleeping in my car if I couldn't find a room. Every sign on the road to Near Bay said "No Vacancy" and it was no better in town. I ran out of land as I went west, when I found Hobucks on the coast of Washington. They had 1 room left. Of course it was the most expensive. But, it was seaside. Not that I had time to sit and enjoy it. I booked the room and and was going to hike to Shi Shi Beach but, found out the National Park would not issue a film permit for commercial shoots on Shi Shi Beach because it is a wilderness area. I decided to drive to Rialto Beach and hike the beach up to Hole in the Wall. It was 4PM and I had a 1.5 hour drive to get there, a 1.5 mile, 35 minute to hike up the beach. Walking on sand is like walking on a treadmill. You don't feel like your getting anywhere.It was a workout for sure! I took about 40 minutes to shoot the sea stacks and the Hole in the Wall and then headed back down the beach to to the car. The sun was getting low in the sky and I had exactly enough time to drive back to Cape Flattery to catch the sunset. 

Here is what I captured:

The End of the Earth
