Blyn ablaze

The tiny community of Blyn, located at the head of Sequim Bay, is the center of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, which owns the community and operates its tribal activities there. At this time each year the landscape is a breathtaking wonderland as miniature lights are tightly woven onto trees and shrubs along the highway and next to the tribe’s many enterprises.

We came through at dusk, before the full effect of the lights and colors could be seen. But you can get hint of what it’s like: truly stunning.

The lights are on both sides of Highway 101 and frame the tribe’s many enterprises, including a casino, gas station and convenience store, a community center, library, gift shop, totem carving shed, and other buildings that serve the tribe and its activities. It’s well worth seeing if you’re in the area.

  1. Holy cow — that’s a lot of Christmas lights! Looks incredible at dusk. Great way to enjoy the season. Hope all’s well in your corner of the world. By the way, I’ll be making my first trip to the northwest at the end of March. I’m speaking at a conference in Seattle…and plan to extend the trip. Really looking forward to it!
