Exploring Cap Sante Park in Anacortes, WA

Anacortes hike Cap Sante

During our recent visit to Anacortes, WA we stumbled upon the Cap Sante Park while looking for a short hike to do with the kids. We had talked about just heading back to the hike we did in Mount Vernon and then saw a small picture of Cap Sante and was sold. Honestly though, pictures don’t even do it justice.

I had really wanted to take them to see Monster Jam in neighboring towns, but we never were able to make it happen. After seeing the show live this weekend, all I can say is that we should have gone sooner.
