Turtleback Mountain 2021

Nothing better than a nap in the reclined car seat on the ferry, waking up from the beauty sleep and being at the trailhead of a great hike in no time. Turtleback Mtn. is the oldest rock formation in the San Juans –  I believe. Who cares, we are going there for the fantastic views of the islands, the Golden Eagles, soaring in the sky, and of course for the magnificent Garry Oaks, that are endangered in our neck of the woods. Sorry you couldn’t make it.
