Photographer's Note

A view from Cascade pass trail, probably the most popular in this park. The trail is not my favourite, because of the shopping mall crowds. About the trail:

The Cascade Pass Trail is a 3.7 mile (one way; 6 km) hike with spectacular views of peaks and glaciers. The trail climbs steadily 1800' (550 m) to the pass. Hikers may explore in several directions from the pass. The Cascade Pass Trail is also a popular starting point for climbing routes to Sahale, Boston, Mixup, and Magic Peaks, and the Ptarmigan Traverse into the Glacier Peak Wilderness.
This well-graded trail can be hiked, round-trip, in about five hours. It switchbacks through cool forests for 3 miles (4.8 km), then traverses through meadows to the pass. As you reach the pass, you are following the footsteps of travelers from ancient times. Native Americans used this route as a passage through the rugged Cascades. In 1811, fur trader Alexander Ross explored this route. Later, prospectors with dreams of gold and silver came this way.
