Hidden Lake, North Cascades National Park

Western USA Road Trip: North Cascades National Park

This was the last of 3 National Parks we visited in Washington. After spending a lot of time trying to find a campsite during Labor Day, we hiked up to beautiful Hidden Lake. This was the first serious day hikes we did during our road trip.

Views from Pinnacle Peak, Mount Rainier National Park

Western USA Road Trip: Mount Rainier National Park

Our road trip continues on in the Pacific Northwest with the national park named after this famous mountain. We stayed in a great campground, and enjoyed views of Mount Rainier from every angle.

Western USA Road Trip: Olympic National Park

A fast paced 3-day visit to this huge National Park with a wide variety of landscapes. We saw rain forests, waterfalls, rivers, lakes, wild beaches, and mountains.

Western USA Road Trip: Crater Lake National Park

A disappointing visit to this National Park, which on that day was covered with smoke from a wildfire, blocking the view of its beautiful lake.

Western USA Road Trip: Lassen Volcanic National Park

We enjoyed this relatively small National Park without the crazy crowds like the other ones in California. The highlight was the hike to the top of Lassen Peak.
