Why You Should Go Now
Wildflowers blooming
Be Aware Of
Snow on trail
Bugs
Aasgard Pass is in great condition -- almost snow free. We did the traverse from Colchuck to Snow Lakes TH (thanks to hiker Andrea for ride back to car!)

All in all..an amazing & beautiful trip.

Warning! I was eaten alive on this trip. If you are sweet like me (or whatever it is that makes one beloved by mosquitos) bring DEET! my whimpy bug spray did not deter the aggressive mosquitos. On Aasgard alone, I got over 10 bites. The Sprite - Perfection Lakes areas were also extremely buggy. Few things can diminish the joy of a post-Aasgard beer, but the swarm of mosquitos did their best.

Besides that...spectacular. Enjoy your permit!

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
