Cape Flattery Lightouse and Helipad, Tatoosh Island, Washington

Tatoosh Island lies about a half mile off Cape Flattery on the Makah Indian Reservation, on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. This is the northwestern most point in the continental United States, although the island itself is not open to the public. The Makah Nation owns the island, and the lighthouse is owned and maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard.

An extremely wild, wet, and windy place, Tatoosh was the ancestral summer fishing headquarters for the Makah. This photo was made in 1984, when I was a forester for the Makah. A co-worker and myself paddled to Tatoosh in a two-person sea kayak.

Photo location: Tatoosh Island, Makah Indian Reservation, Clallam County, Washington.
