AdventureTerra offers “canopy tree climbing” opportunities at Deception Pass Park. This morning climbing instructor Riden graciously agreed to a few photos before the arrival of his first client of the day. Established lines in the park feature three shoreline trees: 150, 200 and 250 feet tall. (See adventureterra.com for details about this adventure concession. Yes, instructors take all COVID-19 precautions, including face mask. I talked him into “bare face” for these shots as there was no one else around, I had mine in place … and once he started going vertical, we were well separated!)
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.
