Mitlenatch Island Anchorage

Mitlenatch Island.  Roughly west of Hernando Island, Mitlenatch Island appears to be an uninviting rock in the middle of the Strait of Georgia.  It is in fact a thriving and ruggedly beautiful wildlife refuge, with a small, protected anchorage on its east side.  Park volunteers spend a week in turn each year on the island doing trail maintenance and guiding tours.  Visitors are asked to stay on the trails to avoid disturbing birds.  Those who visit will be rewarded, as this not from Correspondents John and Loraine Littwood suggests:

“If you can get there on a calm clear day in September, you’ll see an incredible variety of wildlife, from Goshawks to huge sea lions.  An additional benefit is water so clear that we could actually watch our Bruce anchor deploy.  It hit the bottom in about 20 feet, flipped over, bit, and buried itself.
