The little community of Carlsborg has had one disruption after another for the last six or eight months as the area is retrofitted for hookups to the Sequim sewer system. The work is intended to phase out older and failing septic systems. As construction moves closer to completion Carlsborg Road has been closed for resurfacing. For anyone navigating these local roads lately it will be a welcome conclusion.

Creation story

This plaque is set into the pavement at Waterfront Park in Port Angeles. Entitled “Klallam Creation Story,” it is about one of our local Native American tribe and reads as follows:

“The Klallam tell us how the tribes of the region were created at a place on the Elwha River where there are two big holes in the rock called “coiled baskets.” It is there that the creator bathed and blessed the people.”
