Cloud drama

Fort Flagler clouds

We camped at Fort Flagler State Park last week. These are the clouds that greeted us when we arrived. But luck was with us. It didn’t rain until our last night there.

Fort Flagler is great place to explore. It is one of a triad of Puget Sound forts built in the late 1800s to early 1900s to protect the region. In addition to interesting gun emplacements and buildings that were part of the fort the campgrounds are surrounded by beaches. There are hiking trails through forested areas and along high bluffs overlooking Puget Sound. All this is at Marrowstone Island, an hour’s drive from Sequim.

  1. You’re braver than I am. Seeing those clouds, I would have turned around and high-tailed it for home. Wonderful park to have so close! Thanks for your comment about our elected whatevers lowering their egos! 🙂

  2. You sound like seasoned campers. We haven’t done that in years, but I was a real enthusiast. Wonderful memories, and so much is learned about local history that way.

  3. Nothing like a little ‘cloud drama’ whilst camping! Glad you didn’t get rained out. Sounds like a terrific state park.
