From Wikipedia (Since I couldn't put it more concisely):
Big Four Mountain is a mountain in the Cascade Range of Washington, located 33.4 kilometres (20.8 mi) east of Granite Falls. The mountain is about 6,135 ft (1,870 m) high and on its north flank, debris piles form from avalanches and are able to remain there year round because of the continuous shade provided by the mountain. During the summer, snow-melt streams flow beneath the debris piles and cause caves to be formed in the ice.

The Big Four Ice Caves trail #723 is one of the most popular hikes in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest attracting over 50,000 visitors per year. Frequently exceeding several hundred hikers per day, the trailhead's two separate parking areas are often filled beyond capacity occasionally forcing hikers to park along neighboring Mountain Loop Road.

Here is a view from three years prior of the view FROM the ice caves.
