Whether you already love the North Cascades or haven't made it there yet, it's worth taking a tour of seasonal ranger Masyih Ford's North Cascades in the video below.
"It was a family tradition to go camping at one of the National Parks every summer. Those are probably some of the best memories I have with my family," Ford says.
Some people, like Ford, fall in love with the wilderness because they grew up with it. Others come to hiking through school programs or because a friend took them hiking. Others found their way through trail work with WTA.
