Between lake and sea

Published August 15, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

This ribbon of beach and forest at Deception Pass State Park is remarkable on many levels, the most striking being the fact that it separates between freshwater lake (Cranberry) and the open sea. A wonderful place for an unforgettable Northwest hike.

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.
