    2nd annual, Shi Shi Beach Wa. Hang and Spring Clean

    Spring is just around the corner! This means the Washington Coast Clean up is around the corner too. http://www.coastsavers.org/ Officially clean up day is the Saturday April 21'st. But i like to get a head start and start on Friday, set up camp on the beach and start collecting trash, and leave Sunday. So I'll be on the beach, April 20th to the 22nd
    Keep in mind small debris from the Tsunami in Japan are starting to wash up already.

    Here's some photos from last years hang.




    Oh don't want to forget the clean up part.



    Shi Shi beach is located a few miles south of Neah Bay Washington. While the beach is located inside Olympic National park, the trail to the beach is located within the Makaha Reservation. A $10 dollar tribal recreation permit is required. No over night parking at the trail head. Pay parking is available .5 miles and 1 mile from the trail head. Olympic National park does require a hard sided container for food, not necessarily a bear can. But bear cans are available from the park @ the ranger station in Port Angeles.
    The trail to the beach is about 2 miles with little elevation gain. It is notoriously muddy. It is the Washington coast...plan for rain. The weather has been nice the last few years.
    I'll see if i can dig up some GPS coordinators later.

    Holy cow that looks beautiful. A friend was just talking the other day about trying to get a trip in at ONP this year. After seeing these pics I am definetly going to have to try to make that work.

    I attended this last year (6th pic, orange shirt), and it was amazingly beautiful. We had a very small turnout though. It was Easter weekend that year, but not this year.

    I strongly recommend it! I will be there Hulk!

    I too am planning on showing up on Friday as well, and I recommend everyone who wants to attend to do so. It is a bit of a drive to get there from most places, but well worth it.

    Looks like there will be a few others joining. All ground dwellers.
    Hopefully we will have sunny Saturday, with lots of day hikers hauling stuff out.
