Photographer's Note

This spot, just off the Mt. Baker highway affords a grand view of the Nooksack River and Mt. Shuksan. The river is a favorite for white water rafting, canoeing, fishing, or just cooling your heels after a day of hiking. The river is noted as being home to several species of salmon and is a major breeding ground for many of those. The Nooksack is also home to local populations of threatened bull trout, Coho, fall chum and odd-year pink salmon, summer and winter steelhead, coastal cutthroat and Dolly Varden.

The Nooksack watershed is located in northwestern Washington, encompassing Whatcom County and part of Skagit County, reaching northward into British Columbia. The watershed is large, covering over 830 square miles with more than 1,000 stream and river miles, and with elevations ranging from sea level to the summit of Mt. Baker at 10,778 feet. The Nooksack's headwaters lie within National Park and National Forest boundaries, with Mt. Shuksan, the most photographed peak in the United States, jutting out from North Cascades National Park.
