Running north from the Skagit Valley area all the way to the Canadian border and east to the lofty peaks of the North Cascades, this Salish Sea Region of Washington State is watched over by the towering presence of Mt. Baker. The highest peak in the North Cascades mountain range (10,781 ft) is also the northernmost volcano in the conterminous United States, this magnificent mountain is famous for its winter snowfalls. The annual average for this mountain is 701 inches a season, a staggering amount of snow and a beacon for snowboarders & alpine skiers in the winter. Deep forests, plentiful waterfalls, and the enchanting coastline of the Salish Sea make this region a photographer’s delight and provide endless opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, wildlife & bird watching, with outdoor adventure all year round!
