The two RV Gypsies (plus one) stopped at The Jamestown S'Klallam Indian Reservation in Blyn, Washington and enjoyed the totem poles.

June 26, 2015

The Jamestown S'Klallam Indian Reservation is very small in area, comprising 13.49 acres of land area on and near Sequim Bay along U.S. Route 101 in the community of Blyn, in extreme eastern Clallam County at the southwest corner of the Miller Peninsula. The reservation is the location of the tribal government administration, not a residential area. It includes the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribal Center (location of the tribe's administration, natural resources, social and community services departments as well as the Tribal Library and Jamestown Family Dental Clinic), the Tribe's Seven Cedars Casino, and the Longhouse Market, Deli and Fueling Station.

After learning about the above totem pole, the two RV Gypsies walked down a few stairs to see more totem poles.

Then the two RV Gypsies crossed a small street and walked towards some buildings.

The Founding Fathers totem poles are actually the back side of the S'Klallam Legends totem poles shown above. Karen Duquette likes to photograph signs and labels to help identify things properly.

Going back across the small street to the bottom of the stairs they came down earlier, the two RV Gypsies and Karen's sister, Ilse, walked through a tunnel that went under U.S. Route 101.
