hart’s pass

This weekend Derek and I went camping at Hart’s Pass. Hart’s Pass is located in the North Cascades (about 19 miles outside of Mazama). It’s a bit of a trek to get there, but well worth it. The dirt road is very narrow and it winds along the side of a mountain that leads you to the highest point in Washington State accessible by cars. I know – crazy right!? Once you get up there, there is a tiny campground (5 spots). The campsite is really fantastic – but the highlight of the area is Slate Peak. Slate Peak is a tall peak and magnificent viewpoint that showcases the North Cascades like you’ve never seen. The 360 degree view will take your breath away – you feel like an ant in the middle of a huge mountain range. And the shapes of the peaks are so interesting; they are sharp and jagged (unlike any I’ve ever seen). We stayed up there for the sunset – it was so beautiful!

We will definitely be back to Hart’s Pass – hopefully sooner than later!

    Wow! That looks beautiful – Joel and I are always looking for ‘daytrips’ to take with the Jeep! This one’s definitely on my list now. Thanks! Beautiful pictures.
