- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
This spot is one of the most scenic day hikes in Washington's North Cascades. A loop hike, it borders North Cascades National Park. Surrounded by large jagged peaks in every direction, and dotted with lakes and glaciers, it's hard to put the camera down and keep walking.

About a three hour drive from Seattle, take I-5 north, then highway 20 east to the parking lot at Rainy Pass (the drive is beautiful too). The loop hike is about 7 miles (~11 kilometers) with 2000 feet (~600 meters) of elevation gain.
