This image provided by the U.S. Coast Guard shows a large ocean-drifting dock that washed ashore in an extremely rugged and remote section of coast in the Olympic National Park Tuesday Dec. 18, 2012. It was found between LaPush and the mouth of the Hoh River. The Coast Guard mounted a series of flights to locate the dock after it was spotted adrift in the ocean last Friday by fishermen aboard Fishing Vessel Lady Nancy. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration worked to determine the dockís trajectory based on the reported location at the time of the sighting. It has not been confirmed whether the dock is a piece of debris from the devastating March 2011 tsunami in Japan. (AP Photo/U.S. Coast Guard)
