I usually drive here from Olympia, over SR 8 and US 12 which puts us into Aberdeen, at the mouth of the Chehalis River. Continuing west on SR 109 brings us to the Pacific Ocean and the small community of Ocean Shores. This is the north side of Grays Harbor.
Choosing to turn north on US 101 will take us up and around the Olympic Peninsula. A beautiful drive through Quinault, along Pacific Beaches and through some of the wettest temperate rainforests in the lower 48 states.
Choosing to turn south on US 101, we cross the Chehalis then turn west onto a county road that will put you into Westport.
About the map.
We photographers have a tendency to trample and ruin a good spot because so many people visit. For this reason, I don\’t always provide a precise geo-tag on these maps. They are intended to give you a general idea of the location, not the tripod marks.
