Cape Flattery, the northwesternmost point of the contiguous United States, lies about five miles west
 of Neah Bay, Washington, on the Olympic Peninsula.  The cape is the oldest named feature in the entire
 state of Washington, and was visited by Captain James Cook on March 22, 1778.  So named by Cook as
  he described what 'flattered' him into thinking there was an entrance to a possible harbour (non-existent).
  Although photographed on a cloudy July 13, 2011 the scene above was pristine, quiet, and very beautiful.
