NOLS Pacific Northwest - Summer Highlights
Lets have a look at some photos from a few of our courses this summer!
First up, Pacific Northwest Backpacking...
Taking in the majestic views of the Olympic Mountains.
Students use their new map reading skills to find their way on off-trail.
All the hard work pays off once they made it above tree line. Practicing self arresting in snow.
It doesn't get much cooler than this. Traveling on snow in the summer sun.
Next up, the Pacific Northwest Outdoor Educator - Mountaineering Course:
Sandy practicing fixed line ascension in a crevasse on Park Glacier, Mt. Baker.
Group photo with the North Cascades in the background.
Making their way across the mountains with views of Forbidden and Torment Peak.
And last but certainly not least, the Waddington Range Mountaineering Course:
