Autumn on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This is the view looking south from Dallas Road in Victoria. The strait separates southern Vancouver Island from Washington State, USA. It's about 20 km to 30 km across. Since it connects the Pacific Ocean to major ports like Vancouver, BC and Seattle, WA it's a very busy shipping route. The spectactular Olympic Mountains fill the southern horizon.
