Fidalgo Island
Take the time to walk across the steel bridge which arches gracefully across the narrow gorge separating Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands. Look down upon the treacherous waters of the channel named Deception Pass by Captain George Vancouver, in commemoration of his initial mistaken belief that the Pass was a narrow bay and he had charted part of the Whidbey "peninsula", rather than an island. Hiking trails overlooking the gorge are to be found in the tiny state park which occupies the rocky, forested headlands on either side of the Pass.
