Aerial View of Puget Sound
Puget Sound, the flooded lowland that was occupied by a Pleistocene Ice Sheet that flowed southward out of Canada. As a result, today's islands stand up as streamlined north-south trending ridges. The Olympic Mountains, an actively rising part of the accretionary prism, lie in the background.
I was flying from Eugene to Victoria to visit my parents in-law. As usual I had my camera with me... and what a treat!
