Photo Of The Day: Sunset Race Track

Photo of the day

This Photo of the Day comes from Gadling Flickr pool member oilfighter, taken in Olympic National Park and is titled "Sunset Race Track."

Of the image, oilfighter tells us:
"I saw a picture of this location years ago, but didn't know where it was taken. As I was researching Olympic National Park, I saw the picture again. I was thrilled! Little did I know how far it is, and how long it would take to get there.

This is called Shi Shi Beach, and it's a long drive from just about anywhere in the park. After the drive, there is the 8 miles round-trip hike, through jungle, mud, and sandy beach.

To see the fins, you also need to have low tide, and I've been told that sometimes sand will wash up, and cover the fins. I waited and waited, till one day, the coastal fog was minimal, and the low tide will occur during sunset.

The first mile of the hike was easy, and I was cruising at a good pace, then the mud came ... The muddy section of the trail was no joke. It's about 1 mile long, and absolutely wet and dirty." Read more...
