Often described as one of the most scenic highways in the northwest, Washington's Route 20 follows the Skagit River Valley and climbs through one of the wildest national parks in America. The North Cascade National Park, sharing a northern border with Canada, is made up of mostly wilderness land, and highly influenced by the magnificent Cascade Mountain Range. Here, a wall of immense peaks collect vast amounts of snow, contributing to over 300 glaciers in the park.
