Located in the Mt Baker Wilderness area of Washington state, the view of Mt. Shuksan across Picture Lake is believed to be the most photographed scene in the World. One of the most dramatic peaks in the entire cascades, Mount Shuksan is also, at 9,127 feet, one of the highest non-volcanic peaks in the range. With its steep glaciers and icefall's, huge cirques and soaring ridges, Shuksan looks like a peak from the Swiss Alps, magically transported to the Cascades. Its name is a Skagit Indian word meaning "roaring mountain," from the noise of its waterfalls and many landslides.
