Hart's Pass, WA is the highest point possible in this state by car. It's at about 7,100 feet. But unknown to many folks is a much BETTER place to take your Subie in the summertime.

Darland Mountain reaches 7,000 feet and is easily accessible. When you get to the top there's plenty of room to camp out, and here is what you can see from there:

Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, St. Helens, Mt Baker, Mt Hood, Goat Rocks. In fact, you can view the entire Cascade chain from Oregon to the Canadian border on a clear day.

Photo ops? Oh, yeah. And if you like shooting pics of stars and stuff, you couldn't find a place in WA more remote from background city lights.

How to get there: Drive to Yakima. Go east on the Ahntanum Road. Where it ends, keep going up until it dead-ends at the top. You'll need a Forest Service map, but the road is okay, a few rough spots but nothing a good Subie can't handle.

Center: 46.5139°N 121.2083°W
Elevation at center: 2079 meters (6820 feet)

Great info!

Please throw a couple pics in here.... if you have any... I will have to put that in my "things to do, places to go" list.
(Checked off, drive Subaru down ocean beach this summer, WCSS-10:cool:)

Would make a great "escape the Tri-cities heat" get away.
