We drove back toward the coast to Rialto Beach, this beach is unique because it is located at the termination of four Rivers (Quillayute, Bogachiel, Calawah, and Sol Duc) and there is lots of drift wood - It is really drift logs that have been washed down the rivers and molded by the pounding surf. Very unique in that the beach is as a lot of beaches on the Washington coast have rocks not sand. There is a "Hole in the Wall" rock formation down the beach that can be reached at low tide; however, we were there at high tide. Reggi constructed another "Rock Temple" on a drift log. We then visited the Quileute Indian Reservation, we had a wonderful Seafood Caesar Salad while viewing the habor. We saw a seal and lots of shore birds. The beaches are named "First", "Second," and "Third" from the harbor to the south. We visited "First" Beach the other two required a 7 and 3 mile hike just to get to the beach. We found smoked salmon being sold; however, the price of $20/half pound a little steep. There is a Coast Guard station on the Reservation with a wonderful monument dedicated to those who brave the treacherous offshore waters. Our last stop was in Forks, a lumber community that has a Lumber Museum and Loggers memorial. Forks is also know for being the actual town where author Stephenie Meyer based her Twilight book series. It is said if you hike the rain forest there you just might catch a glimpse of a vampire or werewolf! There is an annual event held the weekend closest to Bella’s (Main Character) Birthday (September 13th), and is a tribute to Stephenie Meyer and all things Twilight! in front of the Museum was the Chevy Truck with Bells's name that was used in the movie.
