Climbing up the bluff with views of Admiralty Inlet and the Olympics
With the weather so spectucular, we decided to make Ebey’s Landing our hiking destination. What a wonderful choice that turned out to be. No ferry lines, stunning views of Admiralty Inlet, Vancouver Isand, the Olympics, the Cascades & gorgeous pastoral views of Ebey’s Valley. Birding was a bonus, spotting Eagles, a Red Tail Hawk cruising the bluff, a Hermit Thrush and a Ruby Crowned Kinglet. The hike itself was crowned by a glowing red sunset on the seemingly close Mt.Baker.
If you are interested in the history of Isaac Ebey who chose this site to homsteaded in1850, check out the Judy Bentley book, “Hiking Washington’s History”.
