At 10,778 feet in elevation, it is the most isolated of the Cascade volcanoes. Mt.
Baker is the third highest mountain in the State of Washington. Baker has
an aesthetic shape that 'pops up' surprisingly from many vantage points in the Cascades
and around Puget Sound. The mountain wears a heavy mantle of ice with exceptional
beauty. After Mt. Rainier, it is the most heavily glaciated of the Cascade
volcanoes. Due to its many glaciers, local Native Americans gave Mt. Baker
a name meaning 'White Steep Mountain'
