You could raise a small herd of goats to carry your gear when you head into the backcountry, but then you'd have to find a place for them to live in your apartment and things could get messy. Better than farm animals, the Deuter ACT Lite 50 Plus 10 Backpack will carry all the gear you need for a few days in the backcountry, and will also fit in your gear closet when you're not out hiking around. Plus, you won't have to worry about milking it every morning and stress about it eating your couch while you're away.The ACT Lite 50 Plus has a basic top-loading design with a large main compartment, height-adjustable top lid, and bottom sleeping bag compartment for easy access. Pockets on the top, sides, and front of the pack let you stash gear for easy access when you're on the trail. Like any good pack, the ACT Lite is built to haul heavy loads comfortably, with Deuter's Aircontact Lite suspension system, lightweight aluminum x-frame, ventilated back padding system, and shaped shoulder straps to help evenly disperse weight across the back and along the hips where heavy loads can be more comfortably carried. The front of the pack is fitted with ice axe and trekking pole loops, so you can bring it along on more gear-intensive peak bagging missions and keep your hands free when you need to scramble or make a few fifth-class moves.

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.
