To start the New Year off right, my husband and I went for a couple hikes. Our first stop was at Sugarloaf on Fidalgo island in the Anacortes Community Forest Lands. The wind was whipping at the top so we stayed only a few minutes. Afterwards we drove to nearby Mount Erie and snapped this photo looking over Campbell Lake and the Puget Sound.
Then we went to Deception Pass State Park and hiked out to Rosario Head. Part of the trail follows along the edge of a cliff so we had to watch our step and the wind did not help. I’m the tiny blue dot near the edge of the cliff in the photograph below.
