Fog bow along the upper Skagit River. Photo credit Joe Ordonez.

Fog held on last Sunday in the lowlands of Puget Sound but lifted up here at our Interpretive Center in Rockport. We enjoyed a beautiful sunny day. As they fog lifted, a “fog bow” appeared during the first nature walk of the day. Fogbows are also called “white rainbows.” They are similar to rainbows, but appear when the sun shines through very small water droplets, like those found in fog.

We had our best participation of the year, with great turnout for all our nature walks. There are two days left, January 29th and 30th. where you can join one of our free nature walks. These interpretive walks last about two hours and depart at 11am and 1:30pm. Bring shoes that can handle mud, snow and puddles. There is no need to sign up in advance.
