At the center of our beliefs, here at the North Cascades Institute is the idea that connection to the natural world develops in many ways. Connection can happen through the lens of natural history and scientific exploration, as well as through shared experiences, feelings and fond memories made in those places. So for this week’s winner of the contest, we had to choose two women who perfectly captured these different lenses to appreciate the natural world with—and they also happen to be sisters! Congratulations to @rmryan0530 and @rryan813! “I love the North Cascades because look at the water! And because science! I love that the Thunder Creek watershed has the largest concentration of glaciers in the lower 48. I love that those glaciers mean Thunder Creek has glacial flour suspended in the water. And I love that that gives Thunder Creek and Diablo Lake such a beautiful turquoise color. Because science.”—@rryan813 “I love more things than I can say about the North Cascades. The water. The mountains. The trails. The views. The sunrises and the sunsets. But maybe most of all I love the memories that I have here of my friends and family; the trails, the views, the sunrises and sunsets that we saw together. Even when we are far apart, those North Cascades memories stay close.” —@rmryan0530 There is still time to enter, head to https://ncascades.org/love for more info.
