Memory Monday slide redux, Week 19

I’m finishing up the 1958 road trip this week, with some views of Deception Pass, a stop in Port Angeles, and a visit to Tumwater Canyon in the central part of the state. I previously shared these images in Memory Monday posts from Week 59 and Week 60.

The cultural significance of Deception Pass State Park is as intriguing as the landscape. The most recently acquired property at the park is Kukutali Preserve, which Washington State Parks co manages with Swinomoish Indian Tribal Community. This area features trails through an old growth forest and views of the ocean and nearby islands — Meg Sheff-Atteberry

Only 10 miles north of the Deception Pass Bridge is Anacortes, Washington — home of Traylor’s Restaurant. Back in 1958, it was Traylor’s Flying Saucer, with curb service and hamburgers to go.

Traylors was owned and operated by Bill and Shirley Traylor; although I never had the pleasure of meeting her, she was my mom’s second cousin. Sadly, when I checked out the restaurant’s Facebook page, I learned that Shirley passed away this past August.

And finally, it was off to central Washington, where my mom grew up. I’ve shared pictures of the area around Leavenworth before, but the only image I have from 1958 is of the fish ladder on the Wenatchee River.

The sign reads, Tumwater Power Dam, Multiple Entrance Fish Ladder
