“on the cliffs!”
This dramatic cliff side route hugs the base of Chuckanut Mountain weaving its way through evergreen forests along the rocky shoreline of Chuckanut Bay. From the oyster beds and tidal flats of the Samish lowlands, to the historic Fairhaven District of Bellingham, this byway is known for its exquisite sunsets, secluded pocket beaches, migratory birds, and communities reminiscent of early Northwest settlement.
This was such a beautiful viewpoint and our first official stop once entering Washington from Canada! We sat to enjoy the view and snack before continuing on our way.
There's so many oyster shacks and resturants along the shore drive that are worth the stop. There's also a few places you can pull over and look for oysters or geoduck yourself!
Was looking forward to driving through here again on the way home.
