We came through this area in June, and everything was green and lush. It is a National Park, so the traffic is slower, but there are so many places to pull of and take photos! The opportunities for hiking are great too. Worth you time!

This was going to be my eastbound turnaround point but missed the sign. Snow drifts. only room for 5-6 cars to park due to snow and need to keep road open for plows. several groups with snowshoes. Snow melt -saw waterfalls at every turn.

Be sure to walk out to the overlook, and the continue walking on the trail that leaves from the overlook area, to see some even better views of the mountain/valley off to the east. This was a beautiful area and so glad we stopped!

The view was fantastic. If you drive the North Cascades highway, do leave some time drive to this pass. You will never regret for taking extra time to this place.

This overlook provides beautiful views and has a short path that provides different views of the mountains. Good place to get out, stretch your legs, and admire the Cascades.
