Water on trail
I went up Alger Alp for a quick conditioning hike. It rained and we were wet but the views with swirling, whispy clouds was neat. Just be aware that there are alleged cougar sightings off nearby Squires trail and a bear ran across the road in front of my car this summer only 2 miles north east of Alger Alp.

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.
