North Cascades National Park Summer Hiking

Hiking at North Cascades National Park

July 31 - August 7, 2010


Sauk Mountain Trail, near Concrete, Washington

August 1, 2010 (#2/2)

(Texts are the repeat from #1/2)
첫날의 Sauk Mountain Trail (highest point 5537ft, elevation gain 1190ft)은 일주일간의 산행을 개봉하기에 꼭 알맞은 곳이었다. 눈 돌리는 곳마다 머리에 눈을 인 웅장한 산봉우리가 겹겹이 둘러쳐있는 가운데, 구름과 안개를 두른 산허리를 내려다 보며 걷게되는, 야생화로 뒤덮인 능선길은 한 순간에 일상을 털어버릴만큼 아름다웠다. 숨이 턱에차는 switch back을 올라가 깎아지른 급경사의 꼭대기를 가로지르느라 오금이 졸밋거리는 구비도 많았고 정상부근은 눈에 덮여있어 호락호락하지않은 trail이었지만 올라가는 어려움을 보상하고도 남는 경치였다.





Another picture perfect view of the Sauk Lake and Pink Mountain Heather



Clouds climbing over the ridge



Fog adding contemplative mood to the scenery.


Deviding attention to the scenery and the ground to avoid falls



You feel really small walking up these mountains.

Check out the steep incline!

A long strech of switchbacks. Good thing we are on the way down. But for people with not so sturdy knees,
going down hill is actually harder on their knees.



Walking through the wildflower field



Thankfully you can't see too far down the slope, due to merciful fog.



Lillies adding bright colors to the picture



Stopping to take in the whole picture. Amazing!



Dr. & Mrs. Jae Wook Lee



Through the rain forests



A view of the parking lot (at 4347 ft), with the roof of the Swiss chalet style toilet peaking through the pines.
It was very cute, despite the stench eminating from it. It was one of the two memorable toilets in the whole
park, the other being a hole in the ground with a wooden seat over it behind some trees with no other sheild.
It had a great view from the seat.

We are almost there, you can see the parking lot!



Distant view of Skagit River, way down below

Drs. Hong & Sooja Kim with matching hats in his and hers color.

Organic Bluberry Farm. Plump blueberries, big as grapes were really delicious.



Dr. Sunyoung Choi said "I will shoot it"("내가 쏜다"), thanks Dr. Choi

Diablo Lake Overlook, with three dams & lakes(Gorge, Diablo & Ross) supplying 90% of electricity to Seattle
