Favorite Eats After Hike: Pacific Pizza
11/26/20116 We were staying at the campground at Kalaloch but our time seemed to be limited for walking the beach at any length either because we arrived after dark or the tide was high (and rain coming down) when we were at our site. We walked a bit at dark the first night and the next morning before giving up and heading into Forks to wait out the rain. We watched the waves move the large pieces of drift wood about and wondered how the tree over the “cave” managed to keep itself so precariously perched. There was may be a time after a few more good storms when that gal joins her sisters who have been swallowed up by the sea. We made it as far as the point and viewpoint before running out of beach and turning around.
Directions: From Hoquiam follow US 101 north for 70 miles to Kalaloch. (From Forks travel 34 miles south on US 101.) Turn left (west) into Kalaloch Campground (just beyond the lodge and ranger station), and park in the picnic day-use area. Water and restrooms available.
