Big wheels keep on turning

That sinking feeling...
Where's your 4-wheel drive now?
The beach along the Long Beach peninsula has been described as "the longest drivable beach in the world". The sand is so densely pack along the shoreline that trucks and SUVs routinely drive it.

A local told me that the shoreline is considered a Washington State highway. I have no idea if that is true, but it doesn't mean that it's a good idea to drive it.

Unlike snow, a wheel spinning on sand will dig itself in deeper and deeper as the driver of this truck learned one early morning.

No amount of 4-wheel drive can help you at this point.
