Parks tackle wind damage: January 12
Cleanup work continues in area parks in the wake of a mid-January windstorm that featured prolonged wind gusts. Trail walkers and park visitors have seen dramatic evidence of the storm, ranging from piles of driftwood to downed trees and blocked trails. Included here are photographs from the Guemes Channel Trail in Anacortes; Rosario Beach, south Fidalgo; Bowman Bay, Deception Pass State Park; North Beach, Deception Pass State Park.
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.
