Lynch Cove

Tour clings to the graveled east shore of Hood Canal. Evergreen trees line the road; huckleberry bushes, salal, and Oregon grapes form a dense green undergrowth. On the sandy flats just above the tide line marsh grass grows in Lynch Cove, and here thousands of migratory fowl find food and shelter during winter months. The cove was named by Cmdr. Charles Wilkes in 1841 for Lieut. William Francis Lynch of the United States Navy.
