Amazing hike to the top of Sauk peak! The kids did awesome and they got to play with snow for the first time in 3.5years! At 5,500 feet elevation it was some incredible view of Mt Baker and the cascades! #hiking #northcascadesnationalpark
North Cascades 🌲🐻☀️
Washington Pass Overlook...wowee wow! 😍 And, a hike with friends to Cedar Falls. North Cascades NP feels like home.

Some trippy reflections this morning in Stehekin. Anyone else see the jet powered fish??? Well anywho, that was the calmest I have ever seen Lake Chelan. What an amazing morning! 🏞🙌 #calmwaters #reflections #morninglight #sunrise #lakechelan #stehekin #northcascadesnationalpark #pnw #mountainlove #mountainlife #getoutside
Cutting my time in the mountains short this weekend for the chance to go to my first @outdoorretailer - so excited to geek out on gear and hang with a bunch of great folks. Thankfully @jbmccrar and I were able to squeeze in some July turns this morning (month 57 for me, and 24 for Bryan, congrats on two years bud!) Plus my legs just got over the adventure last weekend at Snowfield Peak that you see above... hope I'm fresh for all that walking between booths!
Need to get some mountain time in soon. It seems like forever ago. Two weeks is basically an eternity. #naturesplayground #northcascadesnationalpark #bluelake #childhoodunplugged #familyhike #pnwonderland #optoutside

The serenely gorgeous Diablo Lake dam, which we visited between games at our annual company softball tournament this weekend. We can't get enough of North Cascades National Park!
Hey remember how much everyone said they loved this planet on Earth Day? Let’s have that attitude EVERYDAY. Be an advocate for this place we call home. Bring a bag on your next hike or trip out into the wilderness! #LeaveNoTrace
Post 2/2: Easily one of the top 5 hikes I've done in life (and I've been fortunate to have hiked some pretty dope places)! And it's in our backyard. 👌. #PNWHiking is 💯! View facing East.

Amazing ride through the north cascades! One of the most beautiful roads I've ever been on! #yamaha #garmin #virb360 #fz09 #pnw #pnwonderland #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades
Alpine AF. We are slowing down as Stellan is speeding up. Nevertheless Walt, Marcus, Stellan and Bill enjoyed a 6 day Traverse of Ragged Ridge in North Cascades National Park. Didn’t see anyone the whole time. Had pretty great weather, some hard and easy days and only a couple route-finding errors. Did find a very special Pass to explore. Won’t tell you where it is... but I’d take you there. #northcascadesnationalpark #alpineaf #mazama #mountains
Heading through a meadowy break in the subalpine fir forests of the eastern flanks of the North Cascades, towards Blue Lake at the interface of the alpine zone (tree line, 6000-7000 ft or around 2000 meters). Still plenty of hemlock here but things were certainly a little drier.

“In simplicity among our mountains, there is more peace of mind than in most cities of the world” - 14th Dalai Lama
We’ve spent 7 of the last 10 days sleeping in a tent, car, or hammock. Our time has been split between North Cascades National Park and Olympic National Park. Lots of down time, lots of time to be thankful, and lots of time to look at the stars.
Cotton candyyyyy
I’ve never been on a harder backpacking trip. 30+ miles of endless switchbacks, 2 mountain passes, giant trees... This is probably the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. Completely worth the effort. I climbed a damn mountain and it was f*%#^* awesome. #🏕🏔🌲🗻 #mountains #northcascadesnationalpark #vacation

There is always something more to life #rechargeyoursoul #diablolake #northcascadesnationalpark
Jagged, exposed, risky, hard, difficult, rocky, cold, hot, sharp - such is life.
Beautiful morning run in the cascades !!! #blueskies #washingtonstate #northcascadesnationalpark
Along the High Divide ridge with views of Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan in the North Cascades. A Sound of Music type of day.
Flying East to West over the North Cascades early this morning. These 10 pics include Lake Whatcom, Mount Baker (with Shuksan in the distance), Lake Chelan (we were right over Stehekin), Glacier Peak, and more!🙂#adventure #washington #washingtonstate #northcascades #northcascadesnationalpark #flying #flight #airplane
North Cascades NP is a unique park in so many ways. It is a combination of three separate park units, is the second least visited park in the lower 48 (only roadless Isle Royale NP welcomes fewer guests) and the park holds in excess of 300 glaciers, more than ten times the number held by infamous Glacier NP. This is Diablo Lake, one of three man-made, glacially -fed lakes that exist here. These lakes power three massive hydroelectric power plants that provide electricity to nearby Seattle. In years past, these dams would provide up to 35% of Seattle’s peak power needs. Again, a unique park.... more to come... stay tuned. . . . . . #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #cascades #explorenorthcascades #diablolake #glaciallake #turquoisewaters #nps #nationalpark #national_park #goparks #findyourpark #nationalparkjunkie #nationalparktour #exploreyourparks #getoutside #thegreatoutdoors #gooutsideandplay #washingtonstate #washingtonnationalparks #explorewashingtonstate #cascademountains #washingtontrails #hikewashington #exploreyourworld #landscapephotography #takethepicture #shotoniphone #parkjunkieforlife
