Swipe ⬅️⬅️ I’m not a big fan of dams (even though I’ll be talking about them this summer on some boat tours) but when I saw this lighting I knew I had to get a picture. I parked my car and literally ran to this viewpoint because I knew the sun was quickly disappearing. • • • • • #outdoors #lake #pnw #mountain #washington #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #trees #pacificnorthwest #nationalpark #water #thatpnwlife #nationalparks #pnwcollective #optoutside #nps #northwestisbest #outdoor #getoutside #landscape_lovers #nature_seekers #landscapelovers #nationalparkgeek #cascadiaexplored #ncascades #ncascadesnps #northcascades #diablolake

Year of the Bird! 2018 marks the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, a federal law that protects migratory birds and makes it illegal to take, possess, import, or export any migratory bird. In honor of this powerful bird-protection law, organizations and bird lovers across the world are celebrating birds in 2018 while raising awareness of challenges, threats, and changes faced by many bird species today. Join us in 2018 for the “Year of the Bird” and celebrate the beauty of birds in the North Cascades. Are you curious about what kind of birds you can find in the park? Explore at the ebird kiosk in North Cascades Visitor Center when open during the summer season or ebird online during the offseason!

Our 17th Graduate Cohort left for the fall natural history course today. They will be on the east side of the Cascades learning cultural and natural history of the area. This 10-day course includes some time on Chelan Ridge with Hawkwatch, where they will have an opportunity to facilitate surveys of migratory raptors. #iloveeducation #ncascadesnps . . . . #nature #northcascades #backpacking #getoutside #pnw #cascadia #hawkwatch #science
National Public Lands Day is September 30 - a fee-free day for all federal public lands and many state parks. Whether you volunteer, enjoy some boating, hiking, fishing, or camping, or simply learn more about your public lands and the plants and wildlife that live there, we hope you'll take this day to enjoy and celebrate the great Northwest. #npld #nationalpubliclandsday #ncascades #northcasdes #ncascadesnps #nocaig #publiclands
#TBT Remember when we had almost 200% precip last winter? We do, and it didn’t stop us from having outrageous fun and education in the North Cascades National Park. There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. #snow #winteriscoming #ncascadesnps photo: @angela_caye . . . . #ncascades #nature #northcascades #ikkedårligværbaredårligklær #pnw #whiteroom #cascadia

Just a sweet morning camp scene on the lake from earlier this summer. Headed out for more this week and looking forward to some new adventures! Ross Lake National Recreation Area, 2017. #pnw #camping #northcascades
This movie featured Mount Shuksan in several scenes. Anyone know the name of this movie?
Have you ever explored on or around Ross Lake? Framed by towering peaks and dense forests, there are many “nooks and crannies” to explore, including Devi’s Creek Canyon. Where are you getting outside this weekend? #wildnearby #northcascades #ncascades #ncascadesnps #solitude #paddle #canoeing #rosslakenationalrecreationarea #explore #reflections #getoutside #pnwlife #whatcomtalk #cascadeloop #scenicwa #findyourpark #northcascadesnationalpark
Peace enjoying a hike amongst the North Cascades wildflowers in full bloom! She requested a combo Adventure with us: Hiking in the North Cascades (to see wildflowers and mountaintops) and the North Cascades National Park Day Tour (to see and swim in Diablo Lake). And so we delivered. We love catering to young, solo women travelers! You too can join any of our Adventures to "Re-Wild" Your Spirit! in NW Washington.
Sometimes a new vessel can bring you to old spaces. Morning stillness on Diablo Lake. Ross Lake National Recreation Area, 2017. #landscape #pnw #water #canoe #theprintswap
some very picturesque switchbacks
Rafael, along with daughters Araceli and Gaby (all from Houston, Tx) enjoying a hike along Thunder Creek Trail. You too can join our North Cascades National Park Day Tour to experience hiking amongst these giants!
Old growth forest along Thunder Creek. The smoke and red light initially confused my visual senses but also provided welcome separation in the trees and unique lighting conditions. Ross Lake National Recreation Area, 2017 #northcascades #landscape #trees
Araceli y Gaby disfrutando la vista de Diablo Lake en el corazon del North Cascades National Park. "Y como se enteraron de este parque?" les pregunte. Resulta que de regreso a Houston (despues de un viaje que hicieron a Alaska), el capitan del vuelo de Seattle volo por arriba del lago y les dijo a los pasajeros que era Diablo Lake. Al quedar encantadas por el color turquesa del lago, decidieron regresar a Washington y tomar el tour para conocer el parque por tierra!

Here's a great idea: add our Mount Baker Day Tour and our North Cascades National Park Day Tour to tours to Mount Rainier and Mount St Helens during your visit to Washington. "It's the best vacation I've had in a long time!" Jim (from Florida) said while Adventuring with us.
Went to a wonderful presentation by passionate North Cascades historians from @WashingtonsNationalParkFund and was reminded of the heroes who spent time above the clouds, thinking like the mountains, and fighting for wilderness. "Wilderness is a place where the wild potential is fully expressed, a diversity of living and nonliving beings flourishing according to their own sorts of order. In ecology we speak of 'wild systems.' When an ecosystem is fully functioning, all the members are present at the assembly. To speak of wilderness is to speak of wholeness. Human beings came out of that wholeness, and to consider the possibility of reactivating membership in the Assembly of All Beings is in no way regressive." - Gary Snyder #northcascades #ncascadesnps #wild #conservation #naturefix #nationalparks
Take in the same grand vistas as Jack Kerouac on North Cascades' 6 mile Desolation Peak trail! But if the 4,400 foot elevation gain isn't for you, take the kids driving on the Scenic Highway then hike the easy Ruby Creek Trail. . Photo feature from @usinterior .

You will need wilderness expertise to find your way to Trapper Lake as you bushwhack one of North Cascades' fisherman's trails. Treacherous conditions and inclines make this one of the most difficult hikes - but well worth it to those brave enough to hack it! . Photo feature from @crystalann_b .

A beautiful series of waterfalls right at the side of the highway.

Day 2 in the Cascades- I can't find words to describe our hike today so hopefully the pictures will do some justice!

Get up early for the popular Maple Pass Loop trail just outside the East entrance of North Cascades National Park. This steep 7 miler will reward you with stunning views of peaks, valleys and alpine lakes. . Photo feature from @thejeanes .

Day 1 in the Cascades! So lush, beautiful, and big! I feel like I'll be saying that many times on our Washington trip. . . . #northcascadesnationalpark #diablolake #diablolakeoverlook #washington #ncascadesnps

Waterfall Wednesday 💦🌿 #vscocam #waterfallwednesday #waterfall
I sure had a real nice weekend, y'all. 😍Celebrated 6 months with my fella with margaritas and Mexican food by the water, celebrated my birthday with friends at the park playing frisbee and football and bocce and then cheers-ed some beers at a brewery where even more lovely friends joined in! And then yesterday my parents and my dog came up to celebrate and I got to enjoy a lovely day with them. ❤ Riding high. I sure am lucky! Life is good. 😎
