I hiked down to the water's edge to see the view of Cutts Island. This is my favorite view. Afterwards I spoke with the Ranger in charge of both parks. Kopuchuck Park has more visitors than Cutts Island. This could definitely be a site. Ranger Dennis tells me there is a flat place on the top of the island on Cutts in which a memorial could be placed. There is a steep climb which might limit the size of the project and the installation.
He also stated we could be thinking of becoming involved in the park's Virtual Geo-Cache program. Rather than finding a cache, one would find something on the reader board/memorial to verify the GPS finding. In the case of Cutts Island, perhaps the words Eating Crow, as Puget called Cutts Island, Crow Island for the plentiful supply of crow, which they shot, ate and enjoyed.
My next cruise will be back to Cutts Island and visit the inner parts of the island to determine a site.
