Cape Disappointment, Washington captured just after the clouds of a rainstorm had lifted. The driftwood, the scotch broom and the vista with the lighthouse made for a real sensory experience.
Cape Disappointment is at the mouth of the Columbia River as it flows into the Pacific Ocean. Its name comes from the many failed attempts to sail up the Columbia River with its massive sandbars.

    Great shot of a place we really enjoy. We fish there at the mouth and inland to the first bridge, I thought it was named after my normal fishing results, thanks for setting me straight on that. ;-)

    Names are always intriguing and interesting to know the history ....In this case scenario the beauty of this cape does not match with its name and is anything, but disappointing..
