Flew in to Portland to see some friends.
Went to Rainier for the day, on the way to Mount Baker.
We stayed in Glacier Washington for a couple of days and hiked Heliotrope trail, and up around Artist Point.
Hiked Easy Pass trail in North Cascades, and stayed in Winthrop.
Hiked Heather Pass in North Cascades.

Really like staying in Glacier Washington.
It was really cool to see some of the places that The Deer Hunter was filmed with Robert DeNiro, around Mount Baker.
Kind of funny because the Deer Hunter is supposed to be in Pennsylvania, but shots are clearly of a volcano with glaciers.
Beautiful though, and still works pretty well for the movie.

Thanks for sharing Jim, love PNW!

Was there for a week last month and didn't get to do anything more than one evening hike. North Cascades is such a hidden gem and I have never been to Glacier, that's great to know...and the movie context smiling smiley
