Winter’s close enough to taste. Here’s three photos from our winter 2018 gallery, by @jasonhummel, @grant_gunderson and @bradandrew. Our Winter 2019 issue is being printed right now!

Challenger Glacier, North Cascades National Park. Today is the day. Fifty years ago President Lyndon Johnson signed North Cascades National Park into law. Link to story in bio.

It’s almost that time of year. For some advice on where to see the alpine larch turn gold, check the story in our bio.

📷: @jasonhummel "To me, the unknown is uncovering for yourself what’s new and exciting. It’s both walking in the footprints of others and creating your own for future generations to follow. It’s pointing on a map and asking, “What is here?” It’s going there to find out because you need to know. Those question marks are invitations, not “do not enter” signs. And mystery is fed by the unknown. In life mystery is the glue that binds the best moments together into something memorable.” - photographer Jason Hummel on his quest to ski every named glacier in Washington state.

Hiking season is in full swing in the high country, with many trails snow-free and the rest rapidly melting. Whether you’re getting out for a week or a day, you can probably borrow some tools from @nickontheroad's ultralight thru hiking toolkit. He’s been on the @pacificcrest.trail since April and learned a thing or two. Link to story in bio.
