Easy Pass & Fisher Creek Basin


Backpack - Easy Pass & Fisher Creek Basin

Come join us for a fun outing in the amazing North Cascades. This basin looks stunning and is well placed for a one night trip. We'll almost have a new moon on Saturday night and I expect to do some serious star gazing. This will be an out and back trip over the (not so easy) Easy Pass.
