Artist Point, Mount Baker

Artist Point is another 3 hour scenic drive from Bellevue. You get to go close to Mount Baker and Mt.Shuksan, so its a win-win!

We spent the night at Artist Point for the Perseid Meteor shower which happened in Aug 2016. It is a historical event. Artist Point is an excellent place to watch meteor shower as this place is far from city lights and thus you get to see stars, meteors as well as Milky way.

This is what it looked like that day!

There is a big parking at the artist point, so don’t get carried away if you see cars parked far away from the point, as those guys might have parked close to a hiking trail entrance.
