At the end of the Mt. Baker Highway (SR 542) is a parking lot for Artist Point. It is only open for a few months each year. The snow here can be many feet deep and the road remains closed until the snow is removed in late June or early July. It closes with the first significant snowfall, sometimes as early as September. It is worth putting it on your calendar and watching the weather. Spectacular views of Mt. Shuksan (9,131 ft) and Mt. Baker (10,781 ft).
