|Map of Moran state Park|
Mt Constitution is the highest point on the Island and features sweeping vistas of the surrounding Islands and The Straights of Juan De Fuca
The original land for Moran State Park was donated to the state in 1921 by Seattle mayor and shipbuilder Robert Moran. Due to poor health, Moran moved to Orcas Island and between 1906 and 1909 built his estate, naming it Rosario. Today, the former Moran estate is Rosario Resort and Spa . It is the largest resort in the San Juan Islands and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Before getting to the top a stunning view of the distant Islands across some beautiful meadows stopped me. I hopped out to take a few pictures.... and had to pull out my gear and do a painting! This painting sold rather quickly at the Moran exhibition held by Crow Valley Pottery at the end of our trip.
