Summer in the PNW? Yes, please! And there’s no better place to explore than North Cascades National Park in Washington. The park is part of more than 2 million acres of wilderness, including nearby Mount Baker Wilderness (pictured here). Enjoy the solitude, peace and challenge that hiking in this beautiful park and surrounding wildernesses offer. Remember to walk lightly in all wilderness areas, so that many generations more may discover this place too. Photo courtesy of Dene Miles.
