Unless you have a flock of trained ravens that carry all your gear in their beaks, you need a light, rugged, and versatile pack like the Lowe Alpine Cerro Torre 65:85 Backpack if you're going to have any sort of success on your next long-range backpacking and trekking mission. And, since you don't have a gaggle of gear-toting birds, you should know that the Cerro Torre uses Lowe's adjustable Axiom+ Back System to fit users of different sizes, along with a rotating hip belt and sprung steel frame to carry loads of up to 70 pounds. It sports both top and bottom access, along with a zip-out compartment divider, to help you stay organized, and even has a removable hydration pack for short adventures away from basecamp. Since you never know what you'll run into, Lowe made sure the Cerro Torre's ready for pretty much everything. Made of super-tough TriShield Grid 420D nylon, it can bust through thickets and scrape over rocks with no ill effects, and comes with a rain cover to help you through the inevitable showers and downpours. It's also fully featured for easy use when you're on the move, with stretchy side pockets for water, snacks, maps, and layers, stowable ice axe and trekking pole loops, multiple lash points, and compression straps to lock down your load. It even has a haul loop, so your partner can give you a hand when you're trying to hoist what feels like your own body weight onto your back. Your raven can probably even use it as a perch if he wants to.

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.
