Paddling Blake Island State Park - Trip #12

Here's an image of mine shot around 2004 at the southern campsite on Blake Island State Park.  I discovered the view on Getty Images over the weekend, originally shot on film.  We most likely paddled in from near Alki, although in later years we found it easier to paddle to Blake from our home in Ballard, approx 8 miles one way.  The paddler in view is Todd Switzer.  The Cascadia Marine Trail campsite is on the opposite side of the island.
