Comments : As you may be able to tell, Sunrise is one of my [Keith's] favorite places to dive. I found this small sculpin on the wall at Sunrise. This sculpin is apparently common in Puget Sound, however I have not seen too many of them. It's bright red color make it one of the more colorful sculpins in Puget Sound.
