On the Samish
BELLINGHAM, WASH. — The other day, I walked — or tried to walk — along the Samish River, I place I hadn’t been in more than 50 years.
The Samish starts in the hills of northwestern Washington, winds past houses and farms and ends up in Samish Bay, Puget Sound. Compared to streams on the Kenai Peninsula, it’s about the size of the Anchor River. By most any other measure, there’s no comparison.
