Skywatch Friday: First Day at Deception Pass

On January 1st, state parks all over the United States hosted First Day Hikes to help bring in the New Year.  At nearby Deception Pass State Park, the weather cooperated nicely giving us a rain-free, partly sunny day with gentle breezes.  The First Day skies turned out to be as beautiful as this wonderful park.  Here are some late afternoon views from Deception Pass looking southwest towards the Olympic Mountain Range.  Happy New Year to all Skywatchers.
