Alki Point is well known as the ill-chosen stormy campsite of the first Seattle settlers and less known as an ancient Duwamish tribal burial ground. Perhaps least known of all is that this jutting triangle of land was undersea eleven hundred years ago until a major earthquake drastically rearranged the landscape. This tour introduces you to striking evidence of the Seattle Fault, three community parks focused on natural history, and exceptional birding and tide pooling spots along the way.
