North Cascades National Park Peaks

In May I took my first trip through North Cascades National Park. Though I did not venture far from Hwy 20 there were mountain peaks everywhere you looked. This being late spring, there was still snow blanketing most of them. I will be travelling through there again in October and now that I know a few of the sights that await me I will be taking my time.

Washington Pass Panorama

In May I took the long route from the Vancouver area to Kelowna, via North Cascades National Park and Hwy 20. This is Washington Pass (elevation 5477 feet / 1669 m) which is just east of the park boundary.

The mountain peaks/ridges from left to right are: Hinkhouse Peak, Delancy Ridge (end of valley), Vasiliki Ridge, Kangaroo Ridge, Wallaby Peak, Unnamed Ridge, Early Winter Spire North and South (party of Liberty Bell Mountain).
