Explore the many natural and cultural wonders of Ross Lake on this three-day tour of Ross Lake with archaeologists and historians.
Experience the wilderness setting of Ross Lake and learn about the cultural history of the spectacular Skagit Valley. From a comfortable perch aboard a power boat, at our base camp, and on hiking trails, you’ll hear vivid accounts spanning 10,000 years of indigenous presence in these mountains, as well as more recent stories from explorers, miners, fire lookouts, park rangers and Beat poets. We’ll spend our days exploring canyons, meadows and waterfalls, taking time for botanical forays and exploration of archaeology in the Upper Skagit.
You’ll be in the company of experienced people who love the Skagit.
Hope Mountain Centre and the North Cascades Institute are hosting this three-day tour, bringing together an audience of Americans and Canadians. We’ll camp together for two nights in a secluded spot beside Ross Lake, sharing potluck dinners and fascinating stories.
Pre-registration is required.
