"shi shi beach is one of the lesser known beaches in washington state due to its remoteness. the roughly five mile journey to the beach is divided between walking through a muddy forest and then along the beach to the arches."
"on a side note, after shooting that sunset, mcneal unpacked his tent only to realize he hadn't brought the tent poles. within an hour, the clouds moved in and it began to rain hard. unable to make the journey back in the dark, he tried sleeping on the beach with the rain and beach crabs. he didn't get much sleep that night, but making such a beautiful image made it all worth it."
