Budget cuts, lay-offs, swine flu, etc. The daily news can be pretty depressing. Did you know there is a place in Washington State where you can escape reality? It's true! By enjoying a leisurely walk to the end of the Dungeness Spit you can exceed the bounds of reality by nearly five miles! At 4.5 miles in length, the Dungeness Spit near Sequim, Washington is the longest sand natural spit in the United States. Those that reach the light station at the end of the spit are rewarded with the solitude and serenity that has been enjoyed by light keepers for over a century. Pack a lunch and stay for a day or sign up as a volunteer light keeper and stay for a week in the restored light keeper's house. RV camping is available near the trailhead. Watch for complete details in an upcoming edition of RV Life magazine.
