Damon Point State Park, Griffiths-Priday State Park - Copalis River Spit
Jun 10, 2012
- Type of Outing
- Day hike
Damon Point has incredibly pretty stones and pebbles, and we saw an endangered snowy plover. We also saw a crow chasing a bald eagle that was flying high above with what looked like a small weasel (still wiggling - what a view before he went!) in its talons.
Copalis Beach Spit ends at the Copalis River which flaunts a stunning range of hues from clear to red to black to every shade of tea. The ocean was not too cold at either with calm surf for safe swimming, especially at Damon Point where the old jetty makes a protected swimming area.
These would both be wonderful hikes in windy, stormy weather. As it turned out, we had lots of sunbreaks. Access to both is easy and paved. Discover Pass required at both. Pics are at: http://www.flickr.com/[…]/
