Two National Parks in One Week!



Happy Easter, All!
**Click on the title of this blog to link to photo album (click on "Two National Parks in One Week!")**

Note the linked pics from below Cascades Pass are from yesterday/Friday. The ones from the coast 4/14-17. The glacier guru in me is quite pleased with the awesome snowpack even though this means we have not had a Spring to speak of (yet to hit 70F in Seattle). There was (is) a meter of snow above about 3,500', rather stable/uniform with no stratification in that meter (but plenty of other layers and avalanche danger over the top). Amazing amount of potential energy up on those big peaks!

Read the captions with the photos--they tell the story.

There are hundreds of thousands of acres like this in Washington that are UNPROTECTED. Choose to make a difference, now and for generations to come. Join us at northcascades.org.
