Not far from my house is the Samish Overlook. It is one of my go-to places for sunrises and sets.
On Labor Day I awoke at 5am and though it was mostly cloudy took an chance and made my way there.
From the parking area there are two viewpoints, one facing south with a view of Skagit Valley and Samish Bay
and the other looking west out over the Puget Sound, towards the San Juan Islands.
Sunrises are always a gradual awakening of colors.
The wind was calm over the water making for some nice reflections.
