Panel at Dunes Interpretive Trail
It was the 2005-06 school year when Anacortes High School students in Victor Garcia’s Marine Science class worked with Anacortes artist Mike Stark to create 13 panels for the Dunes Interpretive Trail at Deception Pass State Park. The panels still serve today to enlighten trail walkers regarding the beach/dunes/forest/lake ecosystem.
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.
