Lighthouse Point

Decepton Pass from Lighthouse Point

From last winter, this is a view from Lighthouse Point in Deception Pass State Park.  The Deception Pass Bridge is in the background.  The Fidalgo headlands here are built of dunite stone revealing the island's volcanic origins.  Winter is the best time to visit the park in my opinion.  The air is the clearest for photos and the park is not crawling with tourists.  The temperature on that afternoon in February hovered around 50° F (10° C).

Despite the name, there is no lighthouse here in the classic sense.  It is a small, mechanized device, more like a ship light, located on one of the outcrops.
