Maureen and I took a driving trip over Cascade Mountains through Snoqualmie Pass to a small town called Roslyn. It was the location for the TV show Northern Exposure which was popular about 10 years ago. The show was supposed to be in a town called Cicely, Alaska. They filmed on location and in warehouses in Redmond, WA (I think). The drive over the pass was spectacular. There is still snow on the mountains, of course.
