Less Than 36 Hours in The North Cascades
Back in August, I was visiting Seattle to attend a friend’s wedding. Even though I lived in the Seattle area for over 2 years, I never really ventured out of the city, too much. So, now, every time, I visit Seattle, I make it a point to do something or visit a place that I’ve never been before. On this trip, it was the North Cascades National Park. I was by myself and I had a fair amount of camera gear, so I didn’t feel like camping. Instead, I found a cheap motel. But in retrospect, I probably should have camped. The night sky was amazing. It was the 1st time that I was able to photograph the Milky Way, As an aerospace geek, photographing the Milky Way was always on my bucket list. So I should have camped, to better appreciate the night sky. Plus, from a driving perspective, the motel was out of the way, so I had to backtrack over an hour, at night, after photographing the stars. I wish I had camped. Camping also would have saved me another hour of driving the following morning. But oh well, I have to go back one day, hopefully next year. I was only able to explore and do some light hiking along Route 20. I drove Route 2, through the Wenatchee National Forest, but I couldn’t stop, as I had to run back to Seattle, to meet up with some friends.
