Brief Directions

From the North Cascades Highway (State Route 20), turn south on the Cascade River Road and follow it 23.5 miles until it ends at the Cascade Pass trailhead. From there it's up, up and up.

Notes

Although I was up late photographing the moon, I managed to crawl out of the tent in the pre-dawn darkness and watch the sun rise. Forest fires had been burning to the east and the lingering smoke turned the sunrise amazing colors and emphasized the layer upon layer of peaks receding into the distance.

Description

The North Cascades are well-known as one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the United States. And the views from Sahale Arm in North Cascades National Park are among the best in the range. The route to the Sahale Glacier brings intrepid hikers to the highest trail-accessible camp in the park and rewards all that huffing and puffing with a spectacular view out over the "sea of peaks."
