Slater SL 3 Plus Tent: 3-Person 3-Season by Big Agnes
Looking for a superlight tent that's great spring, summer, and fall, with enough spine for mild winter trips as well' Point your eyeballs at the Big Agnes Slater SL 3 Plus Tent, which, unlike most Big Agnes designs, features solid ripstop nylon walls (with small mesh vents) that offer a little more warmth, strength, and durability than mesh, without adding more than a few ounces of weight. Toss in a silicone- and PU-treated ripstop nylon fly with fully taped seams and expedition-style coverage, and you have a tent that pushes the boundaries of a traditional three-season shelter. To keep your gear safe from mild winter to summer, the Slater has two vestibules, one of which is virtually as large as the tent, and two nylon doors that seal out the elements all year long. Setup's as breezy as an afternoon ridgeline, thanks to a super-simple hub pole design that features Featherlite DAC aluminum poles that offer stability without any excess weight, and the guylines and webbing are reflective to save you embarrassment, and misfortune, of tripping over your tent in the middle of the night. If you're looking to shave even more weight in the summer, pick up the Slater footprint and bring just the fly and footprint for a light and quick setup option. For three-plus-season camping, it's tough to make a better bet.

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.
