Hike around the barren, snowy slopes of mesa-like Table Mountain to a chain of a half-dozen of the prettiest alpine lakes in the North Cascades. Traverse shiny talus slopes, ancient forest groves, succulent berry patches, and windswept ridges—all with breathtaking views of frosty bookend giants Mounts Baker and Shuksan. Folks in epic numbers have been descending upon Heather Meadows since the 1920s when the Mount Baker Highway made its way here.
