It was our first time to Fidalgo Island on a clear day, so we made the impromptu decision to follow a friend's advice of checking out Sugarloaf. We rushed up to catch the sunset and were greatly rewarded with our efforts!
Beautiful cold day for an amazing view! Mount Rainier was also beautiful to the south.
I spotted this heart shaped rock on the beach on the 1st of Feb. what timing! Photo by Muledeer at Ebey's Landing.
I caught this sunset while hiking the Joseph Whidbey State Park Trail down to the beach. A beautiful sunset with a Blue Heron enjoying the sunset also.

I'm sure most aren't fond of going to the beach in early January, but on a sunny day, Kopachuck was beautiful! Just bring a warm jacket and we wished we had thought of light gloves.

Hiked down to 2nd Beach in January to a spectacular sunset. In maintaining my computer this week I discovered this scene in my downloaded photos.

One of the best places for watching sunsets in Washington.

Sunset at Cape Alave on June 8, 2013
This portion of the hike reminds me of the yellow-green cliffs of Scotland where I used to live. Accompanied by rich blue sky, you won't want to leave.
