Gem of the Northwest
Washington Pass and Rainy Pass are two mountain passes on State Route 20 in the North Cascades mountains of Washington State. The pass closes in the winter months due to extreme snow fall. The park shelters grizzly bears and gray wolves, plus more than 200 bird species. The Pacific Crest Trail, stretching from Mexico to Canada, passes through the area. It is a wonderful place to explore jagged peaks crowned by more than 300 glaciers.
