The name Neah refers to the Makah Chief Dee-ah, pronounced Neah in the Klallam language. The town is named for the waterbody Neah Bay, which acquired its name in the early 19th century. A number of names were used for the bay before it was established as Neah Bay. In August 1788 Captain Charles Duncan, a British trader, charted a bay at the location of Neah Bay, but did not give it a name. In 1790 Manuel Quimper took possession of the bay for Spain and named it Bahía de Núñez Gaona in honor of Alonso Núñez de Haro y Peralta, viceroy of New Spain. In 1792 Salvador Fidalgo began to build a Spanish fort on Neah Bay, but the project failed within the year. While Fidalgo was working on the fort George Vancouver charted but did not stop at the bay. American traders called Neah Bay Poverty Cove. In 1841 the United States Exploring Expedition under Charles Wilkes mapped the region and named Neah Bay Scarborough Harbour in honor of Captain James Scarborough of the Hudson's Bay Company, who had provided assistance to the expedition. The Wilkes map contained the first use of the word Neah, but for the bay's island, now called Waadah Island. The bay was first called Neah in 1847 by Captain Henry Kellett during his reorganization of the British Admiralty charts. Kellett spelled it Neeah Bay.
The local economy is sustained mostly by fishing and tourism. During the summer Neah Bay is a popular fishing area for sports fishermen. Any visitor to the Makah land must buy a recreational permit for US$10. The permit is good for the calendar year.
Fishing for bottom fish, such as ling cod, kelp greenling, black rockfish (sea bass),china rockfish, yellow eye and canary rockfish among others. Ling cod is good in spring and summer, while salmon fishing is good during summer runs. However - Neah Bay is mostly known for the best halibut fishing in the lower 48 states. The US halibut season generally lasts a handful of days in May and June, ending when a seasonal quota is attained. When the US halibut season is closed, some fishermen obtain Canadian fishing licenses and launch from Neah Bay, running approximately 10 miles (16 km) to the portion of Swiftsure Bank that lies in Canadian waters.
Popular spots for halibut include The Garbage Dump, located just inside the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Swiftsure Bank - a few miles out into the open ocean. Larger boats (including many of the commercial charter boats available) often travel 30 nautical miles (60 km) or more into the open ocean, to such places as Blue Dot and 72-Square.
Neah Bay's significant attraction is the Makah Museum. It houses and interprets artifacts from a Makah village partly buried by a mudslide around 1750 at Ozette, providing a snapshot of pre-contact tribal life. The museum includes a replica long house, canoes, basketry and whaling and fishing gear.

Located in the Northwestern-most point of the contiguous United States (the part of America that is connected) the Makah reservation may just be the most beautiful location on the Olympic Peninsula. With high bluffs over the ever-churning Pacific Ocean, as well as locations to watch for whales, eagles, seals and migratory birds, Neah Bay is spectacular. With hiking trails, amazing smoked salmon and one of the best cultural museums in the Country, a trip to Neah Bay and the Makah Reservation is needed!

Olympic National Park is located in the U.S. state of Washington, in the Olympic Peninsula. The park can be divided into three basic regions: the Pacific coastline, the Olympic Mountains, and the temperate rainforest. U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt originally created Olympic National Monument in 1909 and after Congress voted to authorize a redesignation to National Park status, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the legislation in 1938. In 1976, Olympic National Park became an International Biosphere Reserve, and in 1981 it was designated a World Heritage Site. In 1988, almost all of the Olympic Peninsula was designated as the Olympic Wilderness, further enhancing the protection of the region.
The coastal portion of the park is a rugged, sandy beach along with a strip of adjacent forest. It is 73 miles (117 km) long but just a few miles wide, with native communities at the mouths of two rivers. The Hoh River has the Hoh people and at the town of La Push at the mouth of the Quileute River live the Quileute. 
The beach has unbroken stretches of wilderness ranging from 10 to 20 miles (16 km to 32 km). While some beaches are primarily sand, others are covered with heavy rock and very large boulders. Bushy overgrowth, slippery footing, tides and misty rain forest weather all hinder foot travel. (Times to hike should typically be doubled.) The coastal strip is more readily accessible than the interior of the Olympics; due to the difficult terrain, very few backpackers venture beyond casual day-hiking distances.

The most popular piece of the coastal strip is the 9-mile (14 km) Ozette Loop. The Park Service runs a registration and reservation program to control usage levels of this area. From the trailhead at Lake Ozette, a 3-mile (4.8 km) leg of the trail is a boardwalk-enhanced path through near primal coastal cedar swamp. Arriving at the ocean, it is a 3-mile walk supplemented by headland trails for high tides. This area has traditionally been favored by the Makah from Neah Bay. The third 3-mile leg is enabled by a boardwalk which has enhanced the loop's popularity.
There are thick groves of trees adjacent to the sand, which results in chunks of timber from fallen trees on the beach. The mostly unaltered Hoh River, toward the south end of the park, discharges large amounts of naturally eroded timber and other drift, which moves north, enriching the beaches. The removal of driftwood - logs, dead-heads, tops and root-wads from streams and beaches was a major domestication measure across North America. Even today driftwood deposits form a commanding presence, biologically as well as visually, giving a taste of the original condition of the beach viewable to some extent in early photos. Drift-material often comes from a considerable distance; the Columbia River formerly contributed huge amounts to the Northwest Pacific coasts.
The smaller coastal portion of the park is separated from the larger, inland portion. President Franklin D. Roosevelt originally had supported connecting them with a continuous strip of park land.
La Push is a small unincorporated community in Clallam County, Washington, United States. It is home to the Quileute Native American tribe and is located along the Quileute River. La Push is known for its surfing and whale-watching, as well as natural beauty. One of the main attractions of La Push is the Ocean Park Resort along James Beach. It is also a tourist attraction for many fans of the book series Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, as a large part of the series is located in La Push.
The name La Push is an infusion of the French la bouche, meaning mouth, into Chinook Jargon. It describes the town's location at the mouth of the river.
La Push is home to the westernmost ZIP Code in the Contiguous United States, 98350.
Let's Visit - Cape Flattery
I used to think Cape Perpetua in Oregon was the best overlook of the Pacific Ocean from the United States. Cape Flattery has now earned that #1 spot, and you will see why! Cape Flattery is the most Northwest point you can get to in the Continental U.S. This hike take you across all sorts of man-made features (trails and wood bridges) to get to the payoff that only nature could provide (as if the old-growth rainforest wasn't reward enough). An intermediate hike for the layman, but well worth the visit. Please stop by Neah Bay in the Makah Reservation and pick up your $10 day use pass they provide. It's well worth much more than that!
The Cape Flattery
The Cape Flattery is the northwesternmost point of the contiguous United States. It is in Clallam County, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula, where the Strait of Juan de Fuca joins the Pacific Ocean. It is also part of the Makah Reservation, and is the northern boundary of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. More info visit at
