Ebeys Landing

Type of Outing
Day hike

We didn't want to go too far as the mountains looked ominously clouded so elected for a ferry ride and a Sound walk. Much has been said about Ebey's Landing, but we were unprepared for the stark beauty of this 3.5 mile loop. We hiked it counterclockwise climbing the bluff first and meandering north. The douglas firs are wind swept and the vistas are magnificent. We could see out the Strait of Juan as far as Port Angeles and made out the New Dungeness Lighthouse with binoculars. At the half way point, the trail drops abruptly to the beach and we had a nice amble back looking at rocks and occasionally poking through the driftwood pile at the high tide mark to look at the impounded lakes behind them. A very nice late winter walk indeed. On to Rock Fish restaurant in Anacortes for beers and food.....(yum)

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.
