Fly Creek 1 Platinum HV Tent: 1-Person 3-Season by Big Agnes
By definition, the solo backpacker gets stuck with all the gear, but cut yourself a break with the ultralight Big Agnes Fly Creek 1 Platinum HV Tent, a freestanding shelter with a high-volume design that lightens your load without sacrificing an inch of living space in the process. An all-mesh body ventilates and provides a view of the stars, and the silicone- and PU-treated fly acts like a hostile bouncer, turning water away before it can get in the door and cause trouble. Zipper storm flaps and fully taped seams give it some back up, too, because moisture's a sneaky, two-timing no good customer.Of course, the biggest feature that the Fly Creek has is actually what it doesn't have: weight. It checks in at a mere, a ridiculous, and an unbelievable 1lb 7oz, more than a half-pound lighter than a quart of water, and if you're really feeling like going ultra-ultra-light, you can ditch the tent body, bringing just the hub-style DAC Featherlite pole, the footrpint (sold separately), and the fly, after which your setup will weigh just an ounce under a pound--a weight that's probably less than whatever you're carrying in your pockets right this moment. Even with this silly poundage, you still get a fully-functional vestibule, a mesh pocket, and reflective guylines and webbing so you don't trip yourself up at night. Sometimes, it's all about what you don't have.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
