San Juan Islands

We stayed in Anacortes Washington and took a ferry to the San Juan Islands. First we visited Orcas Island and went to Moran State park. It's a curvy road up to the top of Mount Constitution where the views are fantastic.

Amazing views of the Islands with Mt Baker in the background
On the trip up we passed lots of cyclists climbing the 2500 foot mountain - it's a 5 mile trip straight up with some grades at 15%. Wow. 

We prefer our bike rides a bit flatter, so we took the ferry from Orcas to Lopez Island and took a great ride along the bay.

When in Puget Sound, take a ferry!
Saw a tug hauling a house on a barge
Nice House! 
We returned to Anacortes after a wonderful full day in the San Juans!
