Mt. Baker is an active stratovolcano located in the North Cascades and is the third highest peak in Washington. On clear days, Mt. Baker is visible from as far away as Tacoma, over 100 miles to the south. While the last large eruption took place over 6,000 years ago, this massive volcano continues to dominate the landscape of the North Cascades. Here, from San Juan Island, Mt. Baker's silhouette is a humbling reminder of the larger forces that have shaped and continue to shape our planet.
