First Day Hike

Published January 1, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Among more than 100 First Day Hike participants today at Deception Pass State Park was “trail captain” Mac Madenwald, shown here leading a contingent of Anacortes residents into the forest on the edge of Cranberry Lake. First Day Hikes were held at a number of state parks to mark the start of the new year. A beautiful day!

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.
