What’s here in the South Puget Sound? More state parks than anywhere else (except the San Juans). An independent, pioneer spirit still prevails along shorelines where oystermen, loggers, fishermen, and farmers have wrested a hard won living from the landscape for generations. Many of the inlets dry to broad mudflats at low tide, and in places the sun-baked mudflats release enough heat into incoming waters to allow comfortable bathing.
The pace is slow, the scenery spectacular. Mt. Rainier seems to loom 30 times larger when viewed from south sound anchorages than on those rare occasions when it can be glimpsed from Seattle.
