Interesting Facts About Mountain School and the North Cascades National Park

Did you know? That Archaeological records prove humans have been fishing in the Cascade Mountains for at least 8,000 years? Also that North Cascades National Park came into being, officially, on 02 Oct 1968, when Lyndon B. Johnson signed the North Cascades Act? And that Miners prospected for gold, lead, zinc, and platinum there from 1880 to 1910? My last interesting fact is that the North Cascades Visitor's Center opened in 1993. I also have a LOT more information. (I have so much information that this paragraph would be VERY long .)

Another fact about the North Cascades is that plants grow so quickly in the moist climate that some trails have to be cleared each year.

I learned a lot about the North Cascades researching and I found out that the North Cascades is called like that because there are a lot of cascades and also because there is a lot of lakes and creeks too. Did you know that cascades and waterfalls aren’t the same? Because a waterfall doesn’t fall on the rocks they go straight to the river. The cascades don’t they’re just like the slipping slide but more dangerous and bumpy.

I really liked what Brandyn said that each year they have to clear the path because there are so many flowers.
