Rock climbing

He missed the sunrise he enjoys so much, but rock climber Gregg Juergens of Lynnwood got to Mt. Erie in time Saturday to catch the morning sun on his back as he descended Summit Wall. Juergens, who has climbed on Mt. Erie numerous times, came with fellow climber Andrew. He also brought his daughter Melissa and her friend Rachel for lessons in “top rope” climbing.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
