Wobbly knees, anyone?
At one spectacular moment, two bald eagles soared right over our heads mid-way across the bridge. What a thrill! The nearby Upper Skagit River Valley has one of the largest populations of wintering bald eagles in the continental U.S.
Travel+Leisure lists the Deception Pass bridge as one of the scariest in the world.
It is certainly also one of the most beautiful.
Deception Pass State Park has 35 miles of trails with almost 15 miles of saltwater shoreline.
It was a most excellent day, which I recommend to anyone visiting Washington.
