We have visited La Push several times while in Washington, it is an awesome area to see. We did several updates about the area, see our Forks updates. This time we especially wanted to visit the Rialto Beach area. There are several beaches in the area and we missed Rialto the last visit. The Quillayute River blocks access from Rialto Beach to First, Second, and Third Beaches. First Beach is part of the Quileute Indian Reservation (Quileute Indian Nation); Second and Third Beaches just to the south are located within Olympic National Park and are part of the Olympic Wilderness Coast.
Rialto Beach is a wild and unusual beach. Ollie had a hard time just climbing over all the driftwood to get to the beach. You can walk a short distance to visit the Hole-in-the-Wall. Hole-in-the-Wall is a sea-carved arch about 1.5 mile north of Rialto Beach, within the Olympic wilderness. You have to be sure to take this walk while the tide is out. There are tidal pools with starfish and much more to see. Don't miss this one if you are in the area. More later from Washington.
