North Cascades Walk
Newhalem, Washington is a company town owned by Seattle Light. It is a lot bigger than the ten house hydro-camp we lived in for 15 years. This interesting sculpture made of insulators sits in a park behind the visitors center. The Trail of the Cedars is an easy nature walk that starts across the Skagit River from Newhalem.
Strolling through this rain forest you get the feeling that the humidity we experienced was not unusual even if the heat was.
You can look right through this tree but it still lives.
Sometimes you have to look down or you will miss something interesting.
