Carved & Caved

Water is mightier than rock, liquid the victor over solid. Spectacular tidal caves illustrate that idea well at Cape Flattery, the northwesternmost point in the continental U.S. Pacific waves mighty and miniscule, one at a time over hundreds of thousands of years, have rasped gaping chambers deep into the seaside cliffs. The water's work won't be done until this entire shoreline is beaten into a gentle, sandy slope and moved inland, or shattered into a wide field of underwater cobbles and shoals, many more millenia into the future.
