Lummi Island 

Lummi Island, in Washington, is part of the San Juan Islands archipelago, located in the Salish Sea just south of the Canadian border. Bellingham Bay glitters to the east; the celebrated San Juan Islands dot their way south; the necklace of the Gulf Islands Archipelago in British Columbia stretches to the north. Stately Mt. Baker and the magnificent Canadian Cascades rise to the sky to keep watch over the island.
