Vesper Peak is located North of Seattle WA, in the Western-Central Cascade Mountains and is accessed via the Mountain Loop Highway. A formal trail goes part way to Headlee Pass then it is a scramble to the summit mostly on granite slab. It is a fun descent when snow is present - a great opportunity for glissading.
That white looking peak in the center of the photo is Vesper Peak. That is our destination. This picture was taken shortly after passing Headlee Pass.
