USGS Camano and Juniper Head. DeLorme:p95/C5. S25/36-T32N-R2E.

Whidbey Island and Camano Island make up this county. According to Andy Martin, who inspired this madness with his beautifully researched book, County High Points, this is the lowest county highpoint in the entire western US. There are actually five closed contours at exactly this same 580+ foot contour, all very close together, all on private property. Drive on to Camano Island from Stanwood and head south to Island Crest Way. The summits are located off EZ Duzit Road and Sequoia Road. This was son Aaron's first Co HP at less than 2 months old.
