Deception Pass Bridge and State Park

Deception Pass – Puget Sound

Deception Pass State Park is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Thousand Trails La Conner.  We visited the park with our daughters many years ago, and again about 10 years ago when Christine and I took our first vacation ‘without kids’.

 

 

 

Deception Pass State Park – Little North Beach

Little North Beach is the closest beach to the Deception Pass Bridge – a magnificent engineering masterpiece composed of two bridges.  One over Canoe Pass and the other over Deception Pass.  The bridge was built in 1934-1935.  A fun fact from Wikipedia is that it cost more to paint the bridge in 1983 than to build it in 1934!

This is a great place to catch some drone footage, and we did!

There are lots of agates on the beach, this is a great place for any rock hound.  We had Little North Beach to ourselves for most of the time – amazing to have an entire beach for the family during the summer!  The kids and grandkids skipped rocks over the water, watched boats cruise by through the narrow gorge between the islands and soaked up the summer sun.  We truly escaped!

This is only a small part of the over 4,000 acres of Deception Pass State Park.  There are campgrounds, beaches and lots of walking trails to enjoy besides the view of the pass and bridge.

You can see it was fantastic weather in Washington.

Happy Trails!
