Blake Island State Park

8 beoordelingen

Almost completely wild, Blake Island State Park is made up of thickly wooded trails, a fascinating underwater park as well as the typical flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest. According to one of many legends, Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Indian tribe, after whom Seattle was named, was born on this island. Definitely true is that the island was used as a camping ground by the tribe and it was named after George Smith Blake, an officer of the United States Coast Survey. The Indian history can be explored in Tillicum Village, where traditional dances, dinners and cultural experiences are offered.

While heavily logged in the early 19th century, the Blake Island is now once again covered in thick cedar, fir, maple and spruce forests with cherry trees, foxglove and thistle adding some dots of color in the right season.
