Hiking from here to WOW: North Cascades
50 Trails to the Wonder of Wilderness
The authors hiked more than 2,000 miles (3,220 km) through North Cascades National Park plus the surrounding wilderness areas, including Glacier Peak, Mt. Baker, the Pasayten, and Canada's Manning and Cathedral provincial parks. They ascended elevation equivalent to climbing from sea level to the summit of Mt. Everest nine times. They took more than 1,000 photos and hundreds of pages of field notes. Then they culled their list of favourite hikes down to 50 -- each selected for its power to incite awe.
At 264 pages, Hiking from here to WOW North Cascades describes the cathedral forests, pyschedelic meadows, spiky summits, and colossal glaciers that distinguish the American Alps. It offers the boot-tested advice you need to create rewarding adventures. And it does so in refreshing style: honest, literate, entertaining, inspiring. Like all WOW Guides, this one is full-colour throughout, with over 150 photos, and a trail map for each dayhike and backpack trip.
Boot-tested and written by Kathy & Craig Copeland.
