I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen the sign (photo below).......I would have thought someone was pulling a joke on me............it's a real place in the Pacific NW, Washington State: 'Poo Poo Point'.
With a name like that I knew there had to be a story behind it and my curious nature is too inquisitive not to discover it. One website claims it got its name from nearby railroad noises. Hmmm.........?
Located in Tiger Mountain State Park in Washington State. It's just a point and not a summit but look at this link and view the surrounding scenery. Definitely a point to get to and especially if you're into hang gliding or parasailing. If you're near the Seattle, WA area, be sure to check it out.
If you need a trail guide extraordinaire, I'll put you in touch with Nicole Adams, as she is the one who hiked there on Super Bowl Sunday and took this photo.
