When it comes to picturesque views of the wild and rugged Olympic Coast, Shi Shi and Point of Arches tops the list.   The Persius meteor shower may not be that good this year as there is a full moon, but when you are at an awesome beach how can we go wrong?  Meeting place will be determined depending on where participants are.  We could go south around the sound if there are a lot of south participants or take the ferry north if northern participants. Overnight users will need both the Makah Pass and a wilderness camping permit which is available at the Wilderness Information Center.
