Two-day summit bids and quick overnighters through desert canyons don't require a lot of gear, so pack light and move fast with the Osprey Kestrel 48 Backpack. The Kestrel's LightWire frame and Airscape backpanel comfortably support loads up to 40 lbs, making it ideal for two-day backpacking trips, while its feature-rich design lets you carry just about any piece of gear you might need to safely reach your objective. Two daisy chain gear loops run down the front of the pack, and the side is fitted with Osprey's Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole loops, so you can quickly free your hands up when you need to do a little third-class scrambling to gain the summit. Osprey also attached an integrated rain cover, so you won't have to hide under a tree if it starts rain when you're out on the trail, and the external hydration sleeve accepts a three-liter bladder (sold separately) for quick, on-trail hydration.

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.
