Standard superlight backpacking tents also make great kites when the winds start to blow, with an exception to Salewa's Litetrek III Tent. Its unique, semi-geodesic design assures a stable construction in winds as harsh as ninety kilometers an hour (tested by the Technical University of Munich). Despite this heavyweight protection, the Litetrek retains a slim weight of five pounds, which isn't the lightest option, but it's still suitable for long treks in windy terrain. Other features unique to Salewa's new tents include a vestibule that expands and detracts for more or less gear storage, and different door openings allow you to open or close the door's entire wall for versatile ventilation in less-windy and more sunny conditions.

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.
