Washington is a mountain-cradled oasis steeped in stunning scenery. Alpine adventures abound all year round on the Cascade Range and the Olympic Mountains. Both the Olympics and the Cascades offer countless places for outdoor activities, whether you’re interested in hardcore climbing, mountain biking, or hiking. When the peaks are dusted with white powder, enjoy skiing for all skill levels. If you want to reach new heights, head to Mount Rainier, Washington’s highest mountain at an elevation of 14, 411 feet. The Cascades are part of the Pacific Ocean's Ring of Fire, the ring of volcanoes and associated mountains around the Pacific Ocean. They run 700 miles and feature sensational scenery and plenty of adventure. Enjoy a wealth of wilderness adventures exploring North Cascades National Park. Attain the summit of fun in Washington!
