Our Daily Sykes Our Daily Sykes #262 – Somewhere Beside the Pacific February 3, 2011 pdorpat 2 Comments The island off shore with the light I thought was Destruction Island off Ruby Beach on the Washington Coast. But the profile of Destruction Island from highway 101 is not so long and low as this island, and nowhere it seems does the highway come so close and low to the ocean along that stretch. I am, however, insecure about this last observation. Perhaps this prospect is higher above the beach then it seems to be - to me, at least. The highway rarely dips below an elevation of 90 feet along this stretch. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

I do think it’s Destruction Island and I think this must be where the road lowers near Kalaloch.
Matt I failed to get that far north – only three miles or less. But from a few yards north of Kalaloch, as you write, the road gets low and close to the sands and from there the Destruction Island profile is right on. Thanks Matt.
