Mt. Baker, Mt. Ruth and Mt. Shuskan – a view from Hannegan Peak. North Cascades.

At the summit, the views are endless! 360 degree views of Cascade peaks, including Goat Mountain, the High Divide, and the Nooksack Ridge to the west. To the north are the peaks of British Columbia and the Silesia Creek valley, and to the east, Copper Ridge and Mount Redoubt in the distance. However, the most impressive are with in-your-face vistas of Mount Baker, Ruth Mountain, and Mount Shuksan, the East Nooksack Glacier and the Nooksack Tower.

The meadows were breathtaking

Although it was a tad cloudy, it was still a beautiful day on the trails.
