Ascent Trip Report

This turned out to be my favorite hike of the trip. We knew the parking near the bridge would be awful and I still had my temporary Discover Pass in the car so we drove down into the Deception Pass State Park. The parking lot at the end of the park is perfect. The huge cedar trees in this area are majestic.
On a hunch and wanting to start at water's edge we hiked down past the restrooms until we found the water. That is where the magic began for us.
