When you'd rather hike rarely traveled trails and camp in remote areas than deal with crowded pay campsites and exhaust-filled scenic byways, rely on the Deuter Women's ACT Zero 45+14 SL Backpack. You'll appreciate the ACT Zero's women's-specific design when you're climbing steep switchbacks in the high mountains or hoofing it across the desert floor as you make your way back to the car after exploring hidden canyons. The SL fit system has narrower and shorter shoulder straps and a shaped hip belt to better fit female physiology, and the ACT also has Deuter's Vari-Quick adjustable back length, so it can be quickly and easily adjusted to fit almost any torso length.In terms of features, the ACT Zero keeps things simple. It's easy to pack and unpack, with a large main compartment for all of your extra layers, food, and backpacking equipment, but it also has a sleeping bag compartment at the base of the bag to keep things organized. The height-adjustable top lid has a zippered pocket for small things like a headlamp and map, and can be adjusted to allow for an additional 610 cubic inches of space when you're planning on being out for awhile. Two gear loops will carry either ice axes or trekking poles, and the side compression straps help keep your pack cinched and secure, so you don't get a bunch of loose weight pulling your body around when you're hiking down steep strails or climbing up an exposed ridge.

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.
