Peaceful and Bliss. No Traffic or Tour Buses. The roads are usually empty. Great views of the Cascades.

This highway is a great way to see North Cascade National Park is you are not into hiking. There are many pullovers & overlooks that give great views. All you need is some time & gas to enjoy some great scenery.

Take this drive if you have the time. We started out at 10:00 in the morning and went as far as Mt. Washington. There are lots of stops along the way to see spectacular views. Highly recommend.

Following the North Cascades loop gives you some amazing stops (waterfalls, mountains, lakes, etc) and miles of beautiful scenery.

Pleasant drive to the area and enjoyed the Ross Lake damn crossing by car. We also stopped at the Gorge ladder falls power plant which was a great nature walk.
