Cascade Range

Cascade Range
The Cascade mountain range stretches through Washington from north to south, and offers spectacular scenery with glacier-covered peaks, dazzling fields of wildflowers, sparkling lakes, and ancient old-growth forests. Traveling through the Cascades with kids, here's a chance to see a landscape re-shaped after the volcanic eruption at Mount St. Helens, and majestic Mount Rainier, so big it creates it own weather.
