August 30 – Visit to Neah Bay – Farthest West in Lower 48

This morning, we headed west to the furthest west point in the lower 48 states – Neah Bay – on the Macah Indian reservation.

We traveled 60 miles west on a very windy road that only a motorcyclist would enjoy. We stopped at the Macah Museum to purchase a $10 pass and were informed that the Neah Bay point was often foggy – yep, it was foggy and it rained.

The 3/4-mile trail to the point had many plank board walks that were wet and slippery as were the tree roots on the trail. We also maneuvered around a motorcyclist who was walking his bike back up the hill – don’t ask. : )

Kathleen could hear the seals on a distant island that we could just make out with our binoculars. We could also see the unmanned lighthouse on the long island a distance from our vantage point.

So, we added Neah Bay to our ‘farthest’ list that includes Key West as the most southeast, Lubec, Maine as the farthest east and International Fall, MN as the almost furthest north in the Midwest. : )
