The tallest nonvolcanic peak in the Cascades stands out near the head of Lake Chelan. Bonanza, with its two horns and impressive glaciers, is easy to identify from locations around the range. You can see it clearly from Washington and Cascade Passes, but it sees much less traffic than either of these locations. This is a true adventure in a remote part of the range that you will want to visit more than once.
