In an attempt to mix things up, some friends and I decided to go on our first sea kayaking adventure in the Salish Sea. We had all done our fair share of other adventures before, but this was brand new territory and a chance to test our abilities with the unknown.
I recently went on a weekend kayaking fishing trip down in Rockport on the Texas coast and while we weren’t successful in catching any keepers, I feel like we arrived at a productive planning strategy for future trips. We chose Goose Island State Park since we were already familiar with the area and we could stay right on the water.
Devil’s Dome Loop is located in the Pasayten Wilderness which overlaps with the North Cascades National Park. We started on our hike September 18th at the Canyon Creek Trailhead right off Highway 20, which has a large gravel lot for parking, an outhouse, and a stream flowing beside it. To park at the trailhead requires a Northwest Forest Pass, although other passes may also be valid.
