1 Review

Original hand-drawn pen and ink/watercolor story map of the San Juan Islands located in the upper Puget Sound off the coast of Washington and Canada showcasing unique marine and coastal landscapes, features, and wildlife. 

While made up of a total of 170 islands, the main islands of the archipelago are San Juan Island, Lopez Island and Orcas Island. The history of the islands is marked as the homeland of a group of indigenous tribes collectively known as the North Straits Coast Salish. After encountering English settlers, the tribes’ populations declined due to exposure to smallpox and other diseases to which they were not immune. Over centuries the islands would come to be a desirable territory to the young country, the United States, as well as Britain which led to a war over claim of the islands. Today, the islands are part of Washington state and attract national and international visitors each year to enjoy the stunning Pacific Northwest views of landscapes, experience endless recreation opportunities, spot remarkable wildlife as well as enjoy the temperate weather that creates a laid back lifestyle and culture. 

Across the islands are a variety of historic landmarks and 17 state parks for visitors to explore the island as well as the coastal life and views from the island including: Moran State Park, Lime Kiln Point State Park, Spencer Spit State Park, Obstruction Pass State as well as other state parks. Other major locations stand out such as: San Juan Island National Historic Park English Camp, Pelinda Lavender Farm, San Juan Vineyards, American Camp & Pickett’s Monument, Observation Tower, Hotel de Haro, Rock Harbor & Rock Harbor Resort, Liv Winery, Rosario Resort and more. In addition to the state parks and landmark features are a variety of natural preservers across the islands to protect and maintain the unchanged environment and wildlife. 

The serenity of the islands, their tranquil lakes and the abundance of channels between the islands are the perfect dream destination for an outdoor and nature enthusiast to explore the forest and lakes of the islands as well as observe quintessential northwest plants and wildlife such as: breaching whales, seals, sea lions, blue herons, salmon striped sun stars, red foxes, bald eagles and more. 

The lithograph print by Chris Robitaille of Explorer maps is 24’’ wide by 18’’ tall.
