The same pair of dear met us for breakfast the next morning
They had no problem with us being there. Food conquers fears
...and Bears! Oh my!
The black bear that was walking just yards below where Michael was hiking
The Bumbleabout mascot?
On the Hunt
This bear was hungry. Just glad he prefered the vegetation over us.
This trail cut across a long scree field. Watch your step!
The Sentinels Watch
Be passed the gates of the mountain sentinels after crossing over Cascade Pass
Watch Your Step
This trail must need to be constantly cleared of loose stones
Hoping that no loose scree decides to come stumble down after another landslide
I Spy Fern
Can you spot Fern up ahead of me?
Just a close up of some of the loose stones that make up the endless scree field
The rocks that make up the scree field are multiple layers thick. Making the slopes even more unstable
Its still mid-August and the glacier are holding tight to the mountains
Another view looking up the scree field
Towards The Pass
A view from where we were hiking from at Cascade Pass
All along our walk out of the North Cascades we could hear loud cracks from the mountains caused by these glaciers
