New Photos from Shi Shi Beach, Washington

Last weekend I had the opportunity to hike and camp on Olympic National Park’s glorious Shi Shi Beach. Although I visit the Olympic Peninsula several times a year, this was the first time in decades that I had been to this particular area. There were no longer any squatters there escaping the Vietnam draft, but there were quite a few intrepid campers like us, out to enjoy the end of the summer, do some hiking, and in our case, photography.

Check out the entire photo shoot at and stay tuned for the next installment of “Where’s Art?” in which I will discuss photographing in this part of the world!

  1. So awesome Art! Not only do the photos depict the ethereal (i think that’s the word) beauty of Washington, they have Art Wolfe all over them!

  2. Hi Art, these photos are heavenly. Did you ever read a very nice piece of fiction by Ruth Ozeki, who , while walking a beach in B.C. found a young woman’s diary after the earthquake in Japan. It is called A Tale for the Time Being. I live in Santa Fe now, but soon will visit Seattle on my way to Hawaii. Too bad there is no water here. Thank you for your vision.

    Do you have a picture of the rope leading down to Shi Shi Beach? I chickened out when I heard that you had to use the rope and roots to get down to the beach.
