About 20,000 to 30,000 gray whales travel north in the spring and south in the fall, between Alaska's Bering Sea and Baja California.
Cape Flattery, First Beach in LaPush, Rialto Beach and beaches along U.S. Highway 101 between Queets and Ruby Beach all offer good viewing sites.
Of course, watching gray whales can be touch-and-go, since the weather doesn't always cooperate.
You can drive for hours to a recommended vantage point, only to be stuck with windy seas. (OK, then take a hike, or check out the beach for agates!)
