The San Juan Islands are nestled between Vancouver Island and the North Cascades. This archipelago is a unique coastal landscape with large expanses of sparkling water and mountain scenery.
The North Cascades are called the “American Alps” for their rugged beauty and glaciated peaks; they remain some of the wildest and least traveled wilderness in the US. They host the greatest concentration of glaciers in the “Lower 48” and host wildflower meadows, alpine lakes, and glaciated river valleys.
Spring is a magical time to spend on the east side of the Cascades. During this course you'll backpack in the Pueblos Mountains in Southeastern Oregon, rock climb at Smith Rock State Park, and raft the wild and scenic Deschutes River.
The Blue Ridge Mountains is one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. The long geological history of the Southern Appalachians has created one of the most biologically diverse regions in North America; some even say it is “rainforest-like.” This region is home to beautiful rushing rivers, hundreds of waterfalls and some of the highest peaks in the Eastern United States—including Mt. Mitchell (elevation 6,684 feet), the highest point east of the Mississippi River.
