Leaving Orcas island
Nice pier in Olga
A cloud! And its shadow!
Seeing the cloud and its shadow gives a sense of height, although probably not correct.
Reaching Little Summit after ~45 minutes of hiking through the forest is awesome!
Catching the morning wind
Are we there yet?
Passing other islands
Well, almost. This is only a strait, after all.
On the ferry, crossing to Orcas Island.
Last look at the beach
Islands, rocks, trees, people, all fading away in the fog. More interesting than just a sunny day picture!
People in the fog
It's interesting to take such a snapshot that freezes action: people walking, people taking pictures, people taking climbing the rocks... No issue with the weather.
Walking on the beach
This couple seems very lonely and lost in thoughts, but again it is the framing that makes it look so - there were quite a few people on the beach.
Some of it is arranged by human, giving a interesting mix of nature randomness and human planning.
A lone dinghy
Well, not quite lone, but the framing makes it look so. The vegetation right on the ocean shore was surprisingly lush.
Ruby Beach surprise
Fog again! Every time I get near the ocean, fog!
Sekiu, Front Street
On the way back from Neah Bay, a small town with sunny waters; looked like and excellent spot to stop and relax; too bad I was in a hurry!
These birds seemed to behave as it was the nicest day; the people near me, definitely not so :)
The erosion of this sediment layer shows, I think, how the caves form.
In the other direction, more caves, although this is the not so abrupt side, so they look a bit different.
Fog and more fog
This time, the fog almost entirely blocked the view; and given the amount of rocks, one has to wonder how scary would it be to be in a boat near this shore, in fog...
Birds, rocks, waves
It was quite cold up top (for an adult human); I was wondering how cold was it for these small birds?
The caves below the cliff top were very interesting; it was explained that they're temporary, and will probably collapse in a few hundred years.
Down below, some birds have found a rock to congregate on, while the waves were making a terrible noise crashing on the rocks.
Not only the birds, but also trees seem to have no issue growing up in places inaccessible (for us).
Fog and tree
The fog was not constant; some times, it was clearing a bit, allowing one to see further.
It seems thee birds had no issue with the cold, or the quite abrupt rock face.
Cape Flattery viewpoint #2
This slope descents nicely towards the ocean. Not quite so on the other side...
Another viewpoint, another view. Trees, fog, rocks, caves and the ocean.
Cape Flattery viewpoint #1
First view on Cape flattry. Breathtaking, despite the fog.
Neah Bay blue waters
Zooming in towards the water shows a perfect blue, in spite of the fog clouds on the horizon.
View towards the Neah Bay port; sunny, but still some haze present.
Small panorama near landing
Panorama tools don't play nice with waves...
Approaching the other shore
Much more green on this side :)
Looking away from the sun, the haze is still present but the water is much more blue.
