A bit of a drive, but totally worth it to be up on the snow in the summertime. I would love to come back in the winter and build an Igloo!

Like the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, this also a must see. It's so thick and green. It's beautiful in the summer. What can I say, it's something you have to experience for yourself.

Nature at its finest! I am out of words to describe it! Its worth the travel from my bf's home in Tacoma. About 3hrs drive. I... More

Not to be missed. A beautiful view from any direction. The weather changes make for great photo opportunities. Plenty to see and do there, and not far from the Seattle area.

Visiting Mount Rainier National Park as well as taking one of the drives up to the mountain is a wonderful place with views to dream about. Make sure your camera has a long lens and you will bring back photo's that will be very memorable. If you are afraid of large drop offs on the road, just drive very carefully.... More

You have to see this place both in summer and winter. An active volcano area but a picture takers delight and climbers heaven. At 14,000 ft a must see when out in the Pacific northwest. Go via Crystal Mts. Ski area for best views.
