Join photographer Ethan Welty on a photo tour of Washington's North Cascades. Ethan shows off not only his favorite spots in North Cascades National Park, but also some hikes and views in the wilderness areas that surround the park."I'm a Boulder-based but Seattle-born photographer and research scientist with a deep love (obsession?) with Washington's North Cascades. These shy and beautiful mountains inspired me to rope up, make a career of taking pictures, and go back to school to study glaciers at the University of Colorado. Here I share some of my favorite moments exploring my "home range" in the hope that the photographs (a) make you jealous, (b) inspire you to explore your own home range, and (c) help you fall in love with mine."
