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
Washington Pass Overlook...wowee wow! 😍 And, a hike with friends to Cedar Falls. North Cascades NP feels like home.
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.
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!
Always remember to take a moment 🕝
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.

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

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.
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.

Jagged, exposed, risky, hard, difficult, rocky, cold, hot, sharp - such is life.
Along the High Divide ridge with views of Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan in the North Cascades. A Sound of Music type of day.
Waterfall in the Cascades 👌🏻
If you look closely you can see two climbers approaching the top of the headwall 👀☝️
