Few places on the planet are prettier than Image Lake and the ?ower-bursting slopes surrounding it, an iconic location within the Cascades and a destination sought by photographers from around the country. You haven’t experienced the full grandeur and glory of the Cascades until you’ve watched morning’s ?rst rays of sunlight—or the evening’s fading light—waltz across the snow and ice of Washington’s most remote volcano perfectly re?ected upon Image Lake’s placid waters. This is one of the supreme adventures in Washington State—and despite the long miles and elevation gain required to get there, it attracts plenty of admirers.
