1043 Bald Eagle

Sequim, Washington

East of Dungeness Spit State Park you can drive along the cliff where you will find at least one eagle nest. Sequim area is an eagle magnet. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, if you drive around you are going to see eagles – lots of eagles. There are a lot of trees right on the edge of the cliff right next to the road, so you can usually get up close and personal with America’s favorite bird.

This is a view from near where I photographed the eagle, looking out to Dungeness Spit and the lighthouse. On the other side of the lighthouse and across the strait is Canada. Dungeness Spit is 5.5 miles long and I have yet to walk out to the lighthouse. Walking on the rocky spit is slow. I understand the spit is the longest in the United States. The water on this side of the lighthouse is called – guess what? – Dungeness Bay.
