You've been hiking in the mountains for years, and now you're ready to set your sights on more technical objectives. Believing it shouldn't cost you a small fortune to make the foray into alpine and winter mountaineering, Lowe Alpine created the Peak Ascent 42L Backpack. It offers a simple and functional design at a great value, making it a great entry-level choice for aspiring alpinists who want to ascend higher over rock and ice. Tough fabrics withstand frequent encounters with jagged rock and ice, and they also repel snow and rain to keep gear dry. HeadLocker ice axe attachments and ice screw slots on the hip belt equip this pack for technical ascents, and the under-lid rope and crampon strap keep essential climbing gear close. And with a spacious design and daisy chain that lets you lash sleeping bags and pads to the outside, this pack works well as an entry-level backpacking pack, too.

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.
