Cape Flattery, the
northwesternmost point of the contiguous United States, lies about five
of Neah Bay, Washington, on the Olympic Peninsula. The cape
is the oldest named feature in the entire
state of Washington, and was visited by Captain James Cook on
March 22, 1778. So named by Cook as
he described what 'flattered' him into thinking there was an
entrance to a possible harbour (non-existent).
Although photographed on a cloudy July 13, 2011 the scene above
was pristine, quiet, and very beautiful.
