Diablo Lake North Cascades

Diablo Lake Washington North Cascades National Park Ross Lake Overlook
Few things are better left unsaid… especially when you know there is every chance to go overboard and make it verbose. All I can say is if you live in the northwest, you may want to make every effort possible to visit this place before you head to a distant place in your nomadic life, this beauty called North Cascades National Park.

The Colonial Peak, Pyramid Peak and Davis Peak fill the background in this almost perfect picture.

The area offers many hikes, and I ‘d like to have some favorites but the one I highly recommend is a short hike to the Ross Dam which shall be covered in my next post.

Close to the Colonial Creek campground. Absolutely beautiful… The science behind the green waters can be better summarized as glacial sediments but is best googled.
