Whidbey Island lies partially in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains to the west, and boasts a variety of climates. The most obvious are based on rainfall- wettest in the south with average rainfall of 30 inches making some of the most beautiful trees and flowers. The driest in the central district of Coupeville with average rainfall of 18 to 20 inches, and turning moister again farther north with average rainfall of 26 inches. This variation in precipitation created by the rain shadow of the northern peaks of the Olympic Mountains can often be observed in person by traveling from grey cloudy weather on the Western shore to pouring drizzle on the Eastern shore. Microclimates abound, determined by proximity to water, elevation and prevailing winds. Additional variation comes from soil type. The sandy clay and gravely soils of the south give way to dramatically rocky areas at the north end.
- The result is that plant life also varies from one end of the island to the other. The vegetation in the south is more similar to that of the mainland. The principal trees are douglas-firs, red alders, bigleaf maples, western redcedar, and western hemlocks. Vine maples are notably absent, except where they have been planted. Other under-story plants are not too surprising, including the Evergreen Huckleberry, lower longleaf Oregon- grape, red elderberries, salal, oceanspray, and nettles. Non-native introduced plants such as foxgloves, ivies and hollies are also evident.
In the rocky Deception Pass region, the most remarkable differences begin. From here through the San Juan and Gulf Islands and lower Vancouver Island, picturesque gnarled Rocky Mountain junipers grow near the shores. Douglas maples, with their greater sun and drought tolerance fill the vine-maple void. Wildflowers such as Camassia, checker lilies, and Indian paintbrush color the earth. These unusual survivors are more commonly associated with Eastern Washington and the Rocky Mountain region.
Whidbey Island communities are quaint little tourist towns. Many of the Island’s residents are employed by a variety of companies offering travel choices from quality lodging accommodations and gourmet dining to unique art galleries and gifts, antiques, wineries, watch-able wildlife, sustainable villages and hamlets, historical sites and recreational adventures for all seasons. Summers on the island are filled with Drive In Movies, Boat Tours and Kayaking.
