Happy 50th to North Cascades National Park, easily the prettiest of all. #ncascadesnps
Sunrise from a beautiful place. There’s nothing else quite like it in this experience we call life. #northcascades
"Thanks for the "rainbow" tour. It was that kind of weather and day ~ magically mysterious. Thanks for showing us beautiful views of lakes and forest. You are a wonderful guide, so thoughtful and experienced in what you do." Kim & Sawyer from Northern NY.
Peak after peak after peak. These are the views I live for, and that feeling of simultaneous vastness and your own sense of place within it. Geez, aren’t we small? #ilovethisearth
The Mount Baker Day Tour combined with the North Cascades National Park Day Tour make for an ideal multi-day Adventure to experience the wilderness in NW Washington. Just what Namita (from India) planned as an escape from her vacation in Seattle.
Barb & George (from Ohio) were totally enchanted by the wilderness, the mountains, the trees, the lakes, the rivers and the clouds dancing thru the North Cascades National Park.
They combined a visit to all three National Parks in Washington with their Alaskan cruise. What a fabulous idea!
Washington State is an absolutely beautiful example of man and nature coexisting peacefully. The natural landscape contains a vast amount of resources, be it from the water itself, to the wildlife, even to the mountains themselves.
There is quite a bit of industry in the area, yet even then the water is crystal clear, even appearing blue from most angles. The factories that do exist outside of the parks aren't hidden, they're right out in the open.
All of this because they use the environment, not abuse it. It's a culture that I wish Florida would adopt, and one that I will fight for as long as I live here.

The Netherlands is now added to our list of international solo travelers!
Lory joined our North Cascades National Park Day Tour during her travels from Seattle to Vancouver. This is her first trip to the US and her first visit to a National Park. I loved her comment: "it is so peaceful and quiet here, all I hear is the river and my footsteps".
North Cascades National Park: #21
(and counting) for Elle from Australia. It's simply astounding how popular our National Parks are to people from around the world. They are not only national treasures, but WORLDWIDE treasures. Let's keep them that way!
Mission accomplished! photograph the two most famous lakes in the North Cascades: Picture Lake and Diablo Lake. Xi (from China) booked our Mt Baker Day Tour plus our North Cascades National Park Day Tour and enjoyed a multi-day Adventure discovering the natural beauty in NW Washington.
Delighted to have hosted Dawn (from the East Coast) on our Day Tour to the North Cascades National Park and adding it to her long list of visited National Parks.
In fact, she continued on to visit Washington's two other National Parks, Olympic and Mt. Rainier, with sister companies Experience Olympic and Tour Mt. Rainier.
One of the most accessible waterfalls along State Route 20 is Ketchum Falls. This 161-foot tall waterfall is located near mile post 124 and is often missed by passing motorists. Tucked in a cleft alongside the road, you may only get a glimpse of it as you cruise by at 45 miles per hour. To enjoy this waterfall it is best to come early in the season, as it will be a trickle by the end of July. Simply park your car at the first highway pullout east of mile post 124 and walk back along the shoulder of the road to get an up close and personal view of Ketchum Falls.
Where did Ketchum Falls get its name? It was named by members of the pioneering Davis Family after Seneca Ketchum, the newspaper editor in Sedro-Woolley from 1898 to 1901 sent a photographer into the Cascades to capture pictures of the scenery. Have any of you caught glimpses of Ketchum Falls as you drove along the highway? [Image description: Water tumbles down a series of cascades.] 📷: A. Killion
Where will summer find you? Perhaps the Marble Creek Cirque. #ncascadesnps
