Turns out it was an Air Force F-22 Raptor, quite distinct from the electronic warfare jets flying in and out of NAS Whidbey. The fighter jet might have been on hand for Saturday’s […]

The islands

Maiden of Deception Pass

In September 2013 members of the Samish Tribe re-dedicated the “Maiden of Deception Pass” carving at Rosario Beach.
