Dungeness Spit (2)

Mount Baker from Dungeness Spit (looking northeast)

Dungeness Spit State Park is located on the north coast of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. The views (on clear days) is spectacular and can include views of Mt Baker in the North Cascades plus the northern Olympic Mountains. The Dungeness lighthouse is a 16 mile round trip hike … I’m not sure if they sit offer it, but there used to be an option to stay the night at the lighthouse (bring your own everything).

Mt Baker and Eagle

Mt Baker and Eagle

Another image taken from Marrowstone Island. This one shows Mt Baker in the distance, but also an eagle sitting near the top of the Doug Fir. (Clicking on the image will increase the size and make it easier to spot the eagle) That tree is a regular perch for eagles, who watch for fish swimming by.

Mt Baker and Fog Bank

Taken from Marrowstone Island, southeast of Port Townsend. The fog bank is hiding Whidbey Island. The water is the Admiralty Inlet area of Puget Sound. Mt Baker is catching the light of the sunset.

Point Wilson Lighthouse in Winter

Point Wilson Lighthouse in Winter

It was a pleasant winter day down at Fort Worden State Park and the Point Wilson Lighthouse. The view when the clouds are high or non-existent includes a dramatic view across to Mt Baker in the North Cascades. In this case, it was above the smog layer … or most of it.
