The 10,781 ft peak of Mt. Baker can be seen as far away as Seattle to the south and Vancouver, BC to the north. Classified as an active glaciated stratovolcano, it is the most studied volcano in the Cascades.
Spring and summer welcome hikers and photographers alike to the natural beauty of the mountain. Winter brings skiing to the mountain and the Mt. Baker Ski Lodge comes alive with the flurry of skiers anticipating a perfect run. The spectacular views from Artist Point mesmerize the heart with the majestic beauty of the rocky peaks jutting out of snow covered glaciers.
