Recalling Skagit River Salmon Festival 2015
Owls in the wild have managed to elude me over the years, with the exception of a North Whidbey sighting and one at Mt. Erie. That doesn’t mean I haven’t had some great photo ops, however. I photographed this beauty a few years ago at the Skagit River Salmon Festival. Numerous birds were on display courtesy of Sardis Raptor Center, a care center.
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.
