Power vs. precision

During the course of my Monday hike at Deception Pass State Park I gathered a number of photos of damage from a recent windstorm that featured extraordinary high powered gusts. Many trees in the park, some quite large, were scraped, broken and uprooted. With downed trees on my mind, my eye was drawn to exposed bark in the forest just off a trail near Cranberry Lake. This tree, it turns out, was dropped by a beaver. A “surgical” strike, compared to the jackhammer power of the windstorm.

About Photographer 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.
