Blake Island, Seattle area, Washington State, USA
With millions of people within only a few miles. I could hardly believe I had all 475 acres of Blake Island State park all to myself. I had a nice walk across the island and around the sandy spit on the NW corner. In the thick forest I hear the call of eagles as I snacked on some huckleberries.
Here's a link courtesy of Dave Bechtel that give some great insights in to the history of Blake Island.
Blake Island, NW Sandspit
A ornately carved totem pole stands tall at the traditional camping spot of the Suquamish Indians. Today, this this beautifully decorated Long House is a great place for Seattle visitors to take in a traditional dance performance and enjoy a delicious lunch of NW salmon cooked over a alder wood fire.
