i dont think it is necessary to keep driving past here if you are just making a day trip but many go on to winthrop, expect a tourist trap.

Take the time and drive the Cascade Loop - Hwy 20 through northern Washington. Awe inspiring views of Lake Diablo's bright green glacial waters to the the rocky peaks of Washington Pass. Heavenly views!

This whole drive is amazing and coming around the bend and seeing Mount Washington is a treat. Very grateful for the many pullouts.

This is one of the best overlooks in any national park in the USA! What makes it special is the spectacular views in many directions. Bring your camera and snap often. This place is well designed with a loop path worth walking.

This overlook was a high point of the North Cascades parkway, both literally and figuratively. There are two viewpoints that are easy to access that give a magnificent panorama of the entire valley, mountain peaks, and road below.
