Sometimes navigating the Door is not easy as shown by this unique landmark called Jen Jensen’s Winding Road. Jensen, a Danish-born landscape architect, founded an landscape architect school nearby. You can follow this winding road passing Gills Rock, heading toward the car ferry on Hwy. 42. Right now the road is dressed in its spring colors. Mom would like to see its fall and winter outfits too.
On the ledge….a view from the edge of Sven’s Bluff. The bluff is a popular overlook spot in Peninsula State Park. Mom wants to be sure to get some sunset pictures here next year.
The sands of the Ridges Sanctuary are only a part of this U.S. National Natural Landmark. The Ridges is also home to 500 different species of plants, 25 species of native orchids, and 60 species of breeding birds. This beach area was open to dogs. It was pretty windy and cold; Mom was wanting some more oysters on the half shell so our stay was short. ~ Lucy
