Larrabee State Park

The steep rocky coastline along Chuckanut Drive is built of 50-million year sandstone. It contains beautiful tropical fossils since it used to be warmer around here -- or at least these particular rocks were at a warmer latitude back then (sorry, no photos of them this trip). And the salt weathering at beach level leads to wonderful honeycomb patterns in the rocks. I'll have to spend more time up here when I have more time and when the sun makes for better pictures.
