North Cascades

4.5
An endless playground for outdoor enthusiasts--from hikers and bikers to birders and climbers--North Cascades invite you to go back to nature. Dominated by the massive icy dome of Mt Baker, the region encompasses huge strips of old-growth forests, protected parks, and pristine wilderness dotted with snowcapped volcanoes and more than 300 glaciers. Rich wildlife and varied ecosystems--from alpine meadows to dry mountain slopes--draw animal lovers to North Cascades National Park. An important stopover on the road to Seattle, Bellingham lures visitors with its fun nightlife scene. Brimming with riverside charm enhanced by colorful tulip fields, arty shops, and cozy bed and breakfasts, the small town of La Conner serves as a favorite rural retreat. Most visitors remember their North Cascades holiday by a combination of savage beauty, outdoor adventures, and perfect opportunities for landscape photography. North Cascades is in Washington State.
