It looks like many others have already tried to convince you that it WOULD be worth coming. I have to throw in with them!
I've hiked in Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and California and can honestly say the Whites are as memorable as anything I've done.
Surely hit Washington - but make it part of a 2 or 3 peak trip. There are many ways to do this, even as a Day Hike.
You won't regret it!
