Travel Haiku - North Cascades (State Of Washington)

North Cascades
he says it feels like
coming home to roost

North Cascades
insects shrill to the
pulsating night sky

North Cascades' night
crystal shrills of insects
and sparkling stars

Often referred to as 'America's Alps, ' North Cascades is home to 318 glaciers,248 lakes, hundreds of waterfalls, and extensive old-growth forests. And it's only a three-hour drive from Seattle into the heart of this remarkable range, packed with rocky pinnacles and wide alpine valleys cut by broad, roaring rivers. With 400 miles of trails, this relatively deserted wilderness is an oversized playground for outdoors lovers and a haven for those seeking mind-clearing solitude. Hike through serene meadows carpeted with glacier lilies, paintbrush, lupine, and scores of other wildflowers in bloom through August.
