Are you ready for more Duwamish River?
In my adventure along the river, I am now traversing the west bank adjacent to the north end of Kellogg Island. Last week I did a post around the island and some views of the southern end. If you wish to brush up on that first here is the link – Kellogg Island – Southern views
The featured picture gives you a good overall view of the island looking south toward its northern end. The sun came out and highlighted the water and the industry that surrounds this little natural place.
The T-107 park has a few informational signs showing some history of the area. Here is an 1875 map of the area showing where Kellogg Island sits. It was part of a larger island at the original mouth of the river before Harbor Island was created out of the tidal mud flats with fill.
The island is around 1/4 mile long and is a wild place with trees and brambles. Some folks have gone there via boat or slogged through the mud during low tide. I don’t recommend the latter method since the mud could be quicksand like. I took the next series of photos of the shore starting with mid island to the north tip.
I leave you with a close up of the northern end of the island. The natural elements are overshadowed by the industry that surrounds this area.
To see more of my Duwamish Adventure I have a directory post that links all of the pieces together. You can find that post here – My Duwamish Adventure Directory
