Back to PNW & Canada 2011 photos

North Cascades National Park is divided into two parts, with Diablo Lake (above panorama and select images below) in the middle, a man-made lake created by a dam. The only road into the park is unpaved Cascade River Rd. (other photos from this road), at the end of which are glaciers and the trail to Cascade Pass, which ascends about 2,000 feet over 35 switchbacks (views from along trail below).
