My wife and I are trying to visit as many national Parks as we can. This year we visited North Cascades N.P. and Olympic N.P. They are both equally stunning. Washington Pass has a viewing area where anyone can enjoy the beauty of the USA!

An absolute MUST SEE... if you drive by this without a stop, you're missing out big time! Easy highway access, short, easy, leisurely walk to a spectacular view. Enjoy in the morning and the late afternoon to see how the sunlight plays on the mountains.
