We are now in the Northern Cascade National Park. I love mountains and waterfalls and this park has a bounty of them. As we drove through the park, waterfalls poured off the mountains at every corner. I love all the mountain areas, from the smokies to the Rockies, and these are ruggedly beautiful. Breath taking with glaciers near every peak. As a matter of fact, this park has the most glaciers in the contiguous states.
After setting up camp, we took a short hike by a rushing stream. It felt almost like a rain forest, humid and wet with large trees. A great way to start our stay here. It will be a short stay, we head to Olympic tomorrow,but long enough for another hike today. Here are some pictures from our hike yesterday.
Here is a picture of my view right now! The weather is quite warm here but a little windy. No real bear threat, although there is a campaign to return Grizzlies to this park.
