2 San Juan Island vistas
« on: October 14, 2012, 03:21:15 PM »

Hey all,

Been a while since I've posted.  I've been busy with work, but not too busy to get out and take photos.  Simply too busy to edit them :)  Got a huge backlog of images to edit, but that can wait til my knees give out, right?  :D

Here are two shots I just got around to from my semi-recent trip to the San Juan Islands.  Both are taken from the atop Mount Constitution (well one from the top, one from the road up).  In the first one, we are looking east, and can see Washington's mainland, including Bellingham, and the Cascades in the far distance.  In the second, we are looking south, and see East Sound (the sound, not the town), and Entrance Mountain.  Hope you enjoy!

always interesting to see landscapes from other parts of the world

thanks for sharing. I google mapped the location and I guess this would look very different in winter.

Not much differently at all though they have been known to catch a nasty turn with the white stuff. My brother lives on San Juan Island up near the intersection of Cattle Point And Mayfair Point Rds. I like the islands but they never seem to get warm.

These are good shots of the islands.

Ian, the currents in the Pacific come from the California in the winter and Alaska during summer. This helps even out annual temperature changes. It rarely snows in the Puget Sound region despite it's northern latitude. This is especially true if you live right on the water. It does rain a lot if you aren't in the Olympic rain shadow, though.
