My boyfriend and I went to Mount Washington for a hiking/camping trip. As part of the trip, we visited the Artist's point, a very beautiful location, true to its name. We hiked to the glacier when a fellow hiker took us there after we got lost on the Heliotrope ridge trail - and what an amazing place to get lost! :) Wonderful place! Would love to visit again!

Take a look up this mountain, the sights are truly awesome, fantastic views, the roads going up to the peak of the mountain makes you realsie just how deep you are withing the forest.
So amazing seeing the salmon swin up the streams trying to get to the spawning sites..I´d only seen it on TV but to see it for real was something else, you see these salmonswimming against so many odds to get up the river and you end up rooting for them...come on buster, you can do it!!!
A few stores and restaurants on the way up, but just the average stopping place...

I could go on and on about Mount Baker. It's a pendulum that swings from sensational remote mountain wilderness to a spiritual aura of natural splendor. Take 542 East. Take it all in.

Absolutely stunning views of mountain lakes and glaciers! Stopped first at Picture Lake, surrounded by a hiking trail and low-growing blueberry bushes full of sweet, ripe berries. Lots of people bent over, picking berries and after tasting a few, so was I. Beautiful reflections of the mountains in the water. Then on to the visitor center at the Meadows (gorgeous view, building, and a crackling fire in the enormous fireplace). Picnic tables for lunch. Then on up to Artist Point, a must-see. Lots of hiking trails in the area.

This is way better than Rainier. The hike across the top is just breaktaking! Usually you can not take this hike because of the snow but it open this summer. Mt. Baker is not as busy as Rainier and just as breathtaking. It is not as commercialized as Rainier so make sure to bring your own snacks and drinks. Bring good hiking shoes and enjoy it!
