"Xplore" jagged peaks crowned by more than 300 glaciers, cascading waters in forested valleys and the abundant wildlife roaming the canvas that make this North Cascades National Park Map one of our most feature rich to date!
This Washington state gem boasts a vast wilderness of conifer-clad mountains, glaciers and lakes as well as 75 species of mammals and 200 species of birds that either pass through or use the North Cascades for a breeding area. Bugling elk, foraging grizzly and black bears, as well as the elusive wolverine make their way across the landscape while 5 varieties of salmon swim the waters and the likes of bald eagles, thrush, warblers and hummingbirds take to the air in this wild piece of art.
The North Cascades National Park also highlights geographic marvels like Mt. Shuksan and the Picket Range while paying homage to the humans who venture to bike, hike and ski the parks many recreational opportunities. There's a little bit of something for everyone in this North Cascades National Park Map and its unique and artistic ability to truly connect people and place.
