Cascades National Park & Washington Pass Info & VR Getaway for VR Headsets

Cascades National Park VR Getway

Immersive VR Getaway To 

Cascades & Washington Pass

Use a VR Headset to Transport Yourself on a Road Trip to te beautiful Cascades!  This area is just stunning! The glacial lakes are a beautiful Turquoise and the white tipped black mountains are breathtaking.  This does have some driving shots at the end, so I warn you right now if you have super sensitive motion issues.  I tried super hard to make them as easy to handle as possible in a VR Headset.  It should feel like you are riding in a car, so if you don't whip your head around too much, you should really enjoy this gorgeous drive at the end. So what are you waiting for?  Grab your VR Headset and transport yourself into this magical road trip with me that is sure to make you smile and give your day a positive boost.

If you have a Oculus VR Headset, the links below, are BY FAR the better quality.  The compression is better, and they do a good job not ruining the video with compression issues.

 If you are not watching in a VR Headset, make sure you move around so you can see everything, or put it in a Google Cardboard  and the YouTube Mobile App so you can still be transported there.  A Google Cardboard can be purchased for less than $10.  

Travel Issues and Warnings About Traveling In The Cascades

So traveling in Washington and Oregon has become a total different experience in the last year.  With the permissive laws on stealing, it has become something you have to be constantly aware of in those states, but ESPECIALLY in the Cascades on the I-20.  The amount of travelers having their trips ruined by theives is out of control. People who leave their cars because they want to hike, or kayak come back to cargo carriers gone, and everything in their vehicles gone.  In Portland Oregon, your car will usually be gone.  That makes this area tricky, but it was fun to realize that there are enough fun backroads that lead to gorgeous spots that you can enjoy while keeping your eye on your vehicle.  So basically, I feel like this area had more to offer that we felt it was too risky to enjoy, but I felt like we still REALLY enjoyed this area by finding the places people often don't try.  If you love hiking and want to hike the Cascades, the advice from the Ranger, was that just like drinking needs a person who doesn't drink, hikers usually have one person stay with the car while the others hike, and then they alternate on the next hike.   The farther away from Baker lake you get, the lower the risk, but overnight backpacking parking spots, are always high risk.
