This photo required more work than you might realize. So it probably means more to me than to you. But that's the funny part about photography, and why I won't be quitting my day job any time soon! . . . . #noca50 #ncnp #triumph #nikon #northcascadesnationalpark #night #stars #magicskagit #bigdipper

Looks like summer is going to be making a belated comeback this week.

1 of 4 shifts in a row today, but feeling laid back with my mind on the mountains and the mountains on my mind. Haha, who knows this song reference?! Also, to all you PNW adventurers out there, especially my adventurous gal pals, let’s hang!

Singing “America” with visitors and Park Rangers at @northcascadesnps gave me a special feeling of proud patriotism that I haven’t felt in a long time. Our country is going through an incredibly divisive and often disturbing series of news cycles — ranging from senseless gun violence to racist and fascist attacks to political scandals and national security risks. I was truly lucky to share this moment with my fellow musicians and our audience, where we sang in celebration of this nation’s highest ideals and purest values in a glorious, protected National Park. Remembering and thanking the people who have defended those values in the name of the USA on this 9/11. #september11 #neverforget #americathebeautiful #Repost @musicintheamericanwild with @get_repost ・・・ America the Beautiful at @northcascadesnps ... #americathebeautiful #music #american #wild #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #noca50 #nationalpark #nps #findyourpark #pnw #washington #patriotic #singalong #sing #musicmaking #community #allvoiceswelcome #keepamericabeautiful ... @l_incredible @nlabontehorn @colleendbern @ellenrbg @mollycwerts @mollygoldman @andreabassoon42 @emlyntines
Good morning, friends! Anyone else in denial that summer is coming to an end? I’m trying my hardest to be accepting of the change in seasons, but I’m definitely in mourning. If anyone else feels my pain, please let me know. This is from last week when I bagged my first peak that required a scramble. There’s seriously something so invigorating about standing on top of a mountain knowing that your own two legs AND arms got you there. And also the moral support and encouragement from those that accompany you. In this instance, @jacobmchenryphotography who also snapped this awesome photo. Hope you’re all off to a great week! . . . . #thehungryadventures #herPNWlife #pnwoutdoorwomen #PNWOW #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #thatpnwlife #westcoastbestcoast #OurPNW #optoutside #washingtontrails #igers_seattle #shemovesmountains #getoutstayout #americathebeautiful #greatoutdoors #wildwomen #goatworthy #welivetoexplore #keepitwild #northcascades #lovemyncascades #NOCA50 #nocaig

“Since moving from the Midwest to the Northwest in 2013, I've developed a strong sense of identity with North Cascades National Park. Through this project, I hope to raise awareness and appreciation for the park. In turn, I hope to inspire others to find, respect, and be enriched by their own national parks and local landscapes.” ~ Scott Kranz Learn more and support his 50 Peaks project supporting North Cascades National Park in celebration of their 50th anniversary online: http://ow.ly/kzOl50ib4za #northcascades #nationalparks #findyourpark #lovemyncascades #NOCA50 #50Peaks Photo courtesy of @scott_kranz

So much love, admiration and pride for these two on their first backpacking and paddle trip. The laughs and stamina outweighed the tears and bickering for sure and being outdoors under the misty skies was such a welcome relief. #lilyandadelina #rosslake #noca50

This woman is my hero. 💚 Ranger Denise Schultz is an incredible visionary with infectious optimism and drive. She is a leader with acute listening skills and the ability to create opportunities where others see barriers. Denise is a champion of education, music, and community building. Can I be her when I grow up?? Happy 102nd birthday, @nationalparkservice and happy 50th, @northcascadesnps. Thank you for protecting and celebrating our country’s natural treasures.

Rainbow Falls: The falls is a marvel. A steep mountain creek of churning white water full to overflowing with a winter’s worth of snowmelt. It cascades, each bubble or piece of froth distinct, tumbling without hurry, surging, pulled over the cliff’s edge and into empty space by the same rule of gravity that wants to keep feet, paws and claws firmly against the ground. While water floats into cedar-scented space it divides into drops – thousands - and divides again and again - millions and millions of drops. Every drop makes a sound against the air, a tiny flutter, a little wing beat with all the wing sounds making the sound of a shimmering wind. Dropping for hundreds of feet, each fluttering wing descends into a pool at the base of the falls, punching the pool’s surface with a sound against the water that touches the ear like a pebble falling to the floor, uncountable pebbles becoming a roll of thunder that doesn’t stop.
#TBT to 2013 with a peek of Diablo Dam spilling. Can you see the rainbow emerging from the mist? Wow! We hope you’re having a great week! 🌈 . . . #SeeSkagit #northcascadesnationalpark #SkagitTours #hydropower #NOCA50 #findyourpark #northcascades
I can’t believe it – I’m more than half way through my 50 Peaks project! This season I’m climbing 50 peaks inside North Cascades National Park (@ncascadesnps ) to celebrate the park turning 50 years old (1968-2018). What a journey it’s been thus far! The importance of this park and wilderness has never been more clear to me – truly a special place worthy of the utmost respect and protection. Visit my official project page (link in bio) to learn more, track my progress, check out my interactive map, and to help me fundraise for the park through @wanatlparkfund (find the “donate” section on the main page) Thanks to all of you for following this project, and thanks to my wife, family, and friends for all the constant help and support. Also thanks to @coltonandrewjacobs for capturing me in my element on the very first peak (1st slide/image), and to @caseys3 for videoing perhaps my biggest blooper yet, haha (8th slide). Cheers! #nc50peaks #noca50 #ncascades #northcascades

A young western red cedar grows from the nurse log of a much older tree of the same species, giving this stump a second life. The opportunity to nourish the next generation of growth in the forest is an example of the life cycle in nature makes use of everything available. . . . . #NOCA50 #Hike #LakeChelan #NPS #Stehekin #PNW #WanderWashington #PNWonderland #NCascadesNPS #backpacking #pct #noca #ncascades #northcascades #pacificnorthwest #pnwhikers #leavenotrace #pnwlife #washingtonstate #cascades
Ummmmmmmm...... we're gonna need to set the tent up pretty soon, huh? The wedder coming in fast across the Inspiration icecap as we watched from Ragged Ridge. . . . #noca50 #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #magicskagit #100highest #mountaineering #thunderstorm #whyaretentpolesaluminum
Cosho .... or "Ragged End" as it was called by the first ascensionists. It's the ragged ridge peak closest to 4th of July pass. I imagine it was a bit frustrating to have Fred rename the peak after you'd climbed it, but I'll have to ask John about that next time I see him. . . . #northcascades #noca50 #100highest #magicskagit #onlyinwashington #mountaineering #northcascadesnationalpark
The upper Fisher Creek valley is one of the more perfect u-shaped valleys in the North Cascades, maybe partly due to the graceful curve. Arches peak doesn't hurt either. . . . #magicskagit #noca50 #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #glacialhistory
The treacherous slabs on Katsuk are probably a little extra treacherous now, until the last of the snow comes off. . . . #northcascadesnationalpark #noca50 #magicskagit #mountaineering #100highest #northcascades #choss #raggedridge
Summer temps are here in the North Cascades and with that brings epic alpine views and fun summertime happenings!! North Cascades National Park is turning 50 this year and will be having celebratory events throughout the season! Like Music in the American Wild, August 21-25. Stop by the North Cascades visitor center in Newhalem for more information on what to do while in the park, trail conditions, awesome ranger programs and junior ranger fun times for kids of all ages! Stop by the wilderness information center in Marblemount for permits and backcountry travel info. 📸: @staciangeliques
An interesting perspective on two of the 100 highest in Washington, Mesahchie and Katsuk. Ragged Ridge is aptly named. . . #noca50 #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #magicskagit #onlyinwashington #mountaineering #100highest
Hard to imagine some places exist on earth, let alone in your own big backyard. With each peak I climb in North Cascades National Park (@ncascadesnps ), I’m all the more humbled by what this wilderness has to offer in pristine, rugged beauty. Here, @moonmountainman stands along the northwest ridge of Dorado Needle as part of our 16-hour push covering four peaks. As of today I’m 18 peaks into my 50 Peaks project, and I’m blown away by all the support. I’m raising money directly for the park through @wanatlparkfund – if interested, you can visit my profile link to donate and support this amazing national park! 🙏🏼 #nc50peaks #noca50 #northcascades
I am not ready to go back to work on night shift tonight so instead I’ll be daydreaming about places like this. This is from a few weeks ago from one of my most favorite hikes in WA so far.

*insert cliché about staring off into my weekend like... #northcascadeslove
Attempt four was a rousing success. Twice I was met with cold winds, clouds and no view. Another time I was forced to turn around due to whiteout conditions. This trip welcomed us with warm temperatures, great snow conditions and epic views. In addition to squeezing in time for friends and family, I’m glad on my short visit home I was able to hike with some guys from the team. See you again for Thanksgiving, Washington 👋🏼 _________________________________________ Hidden Lake Lookout, North Cascades National Park _________________________________________ #PNW #LiveWashington #pnwcollective #UpperLeftUSA #NeverStopExploring #wildernessculture #theoutbound #REI1440Project #OptOutside #LiveYourAdventure #pnwlife #livepnw #NorthWestIsBest #AdventureVisuals #NoCa50 #NoCaIG
I’ve hit that stage of summer where I daydream about mountains nonstop - especially when it’s raining outside. Better channel that energy into a long run after work. 🏃🏽‍♀️
One of the three thawing Thorton Lakes; it’s beginning to be summer in the mountains! #noca50 #nocaig
Summit sillies. But seriously, the views of the cascade range and opportunity for orientation were spectacular. 👌#noca50
When we began hiking, the intention was not to summit a mountain. I wanted to see some alpine lakes and reflect on how neat and complicated public lands are... but then when the snow patches seemed navigable, and the views were beyond inspiring, we kept on climbing up Trappers Peak. ⛰ Happy fourth, y’all. Let’s be kind to each other, and this land we inhabit.
The best kind of morning commute, even in the rain. . . . . #noca50 #bigbeaver #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #magicskagit

I didn't go over to look but it appeared to be limestone? Not something I typically see in the North Cascades alpine. Will have to review a geologic map.... . . #noca50 #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #magicskagit
