The most favorite places

Mt. Constitution

Mount Constitution, rising nearly a half mile high above Orcas Island, is the highest point in the San Juan Islands.  Sitting on the crest is a stone tower replica of Russian watchtowers constructed in the Caucasus during the 12th century.  In the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed this tower and the road and bridges which lead to the summit of Mount Constitution.  From the tower visitors can observe a 360 degree view of the surrounding area including shots of Mount Baker, the North Cascades, and the other islands of the San Juan Archipelago.
