Washington’s Most Photogenic Wild Places

These scenic locales show up among our photo contest entries every year, and they’re so darn pretty, they often win.

Perfection Lake

Take your pick between this lake and any of the myriad pools that dot the Enchant- ments. Shooting pictures in this central Cascades hideaway is as about as close to shooting fish in a barrel as photography gets.

Mount Shuksan

If you’re going for the classic shot, put Lake Ann in the foreground and make sure the peak is dusted with snow.

Yellow Aster Butte

Abundant huckleberries give these meadows north of Mount Baker a brilliant red cast in autumn.

Sahale Arm

No detail shots here, just big panoramas bursting with the alpine grandeur of the North Cascades.

Shi Shi Beach

The Olympic Coast offers endless photographic op- portunities. The classic shot here is sunset at low tide with backlit sea stacks.

Palouse Falls

Southeastern Washington’s most majestic waterfall draws photographers hop- ing to catch its milky waters in just the right light.
