I very much enjoyed my visit to the Makah Indian Reservation. It was a long day trip to arrive from Port Townsend, but very lovely water views. I liked the postings as I entered advising of regulations.

The Makah reservation is up by Neah Bay and includes Shi Shi beach. Some beautiful beaches and nice views across the Straits but not in Forks! See Shi Shi beach. There is also a very very good museum of Makah artifacts in Neah Bay.
