7. Massive Driftwood

(Photographer: Phillip Lachman Summary Author: Phillip Lachman This "piece" of driftwood washed up on the beach at La Push, a small community in Clallam County, Washington. On our visit there in early spring, a very strong gale was blowing. Powerful winds accompanied by high tides are required to bring monsters like this ashore. The entire length of the beach was strewn with driftwood of all sizes. La Push, surrounded by the lush forest of the Olympic National Park, is located on the northwest coast of Washington's most westerly peninsula, at the mouth of the Quillayute River. La Push is the home of the Quileute Tribe.
