Trail fix under way, ADA accessible

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 […]

From kayaking to Kasakhstan

I encountered this kayaker at Cranberry Lake this morning. I asked him if I could take his photo, and he said yes. He then identified himself as John O’Connell, a retired teacher in Washington State, now on his way to teach in Kasakhstan (central Asia, formerly a Soviet republic). Too early to retire, he said.

There was a hawk flying […]

Many trees in the park, some quite large, were scraped, broken and uprooted. With downed trees on my mind, my eye was drawn to exposed […]

Wildlife adventure

One place led to the other, and before my Wednesday outing was over I had visited Rosario Head, Bowman Bay and the West Beach Cranberry Lake area of Deception Pass State Park. Had to take some photos of wildlife friends along the way. Hawk and geese surprised me with their patience.

Citing environmental and safety concerns, State Parks has plans to replace the existing pier, gangway and float at East Cranberry Lake in Deception Pass State Park.

Eagles all ’round

  How many eagle photos can one take? Never enough. Recent days in the outdoors have included welcome encounters with some beauties. This collection includes eagles from Fidalgo Island, North Whidbey Island and the western agricultural region of Skagit County. I really had to work hard for the photo of the pair, perched on a […]
