North Cascades National Park

A couple of years ago,  We drove through North Cascades National Park (on a 4 day trip back to Texas) and only stopped for one hike.   What a shame,  this is a wonderful place to be.  Even though it was the start of Labor Day weekend,  It wasnt even really that crowded.  I even got a campsite.  I hiked to and photographed a number of water falls.  The lakes are an incredible turquoise blue;   the color comes from the glacial flour caused as the glaciers move over the rocks, it grinds the rocks down to a fine flower that gets stored in the glacier till it melts.  I spent a couple of full days here.  It was a wonderful way to start the trip.  I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking for this park.
