A repair and resurfacing project is under way in the dunes area of Deception Pass State Park near Cranberry Lake. The ADA trail was no longer accessible to wheelchairs, with tree roots pushing up through the asphalt. During the closure, old asphalt will be removed, with new gravel placed and fresh paving installed. A wonderful path through forest and sand dunes, re-opening later this month.
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.
