Joseph Whidbey State Park south beach view by R. Roberts
This was a great choice for a blustery day. I encountered only 2 other people as I hiked along the beach from the lower parking lot. Since no red warning flag was flying today,(apparently the navy does live fire exercises past the park, indicated with a red warning flag) I continued out through the park across the navy section and all the way up to Rocky Butte.

There I turned around and headed back, facing into the wind. I paused to explore a few little beach log forts along the way, and had to laugh at one that had a courteous, "please don't pee in here" sign on it.

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
