North Cascades 2: The Peaks

Pac Northwest SM18-50

The mountains in North Cascades National Park are not, in terms of sheer elevation, all that high. The highest peaks are in the eight to nine thousand foot range. But because the lowest parts of the park aren’t much higher than one to two thousand feet, the peaks seem much higher. Here are some images of a few miscellaneous peaks:

One of the most scenic areas in this section of the country centers around Washington Pass, the highest pass through this section of the Cascades. This area is not technically within North Cascades National Park, but is just to the east of the park. Some images:
