DIABLO LAKE TOUR + NORTH CASCADES INSTITUTE - THURSDAY JULY 18TH
Since the 1920’s, visitors have traveled to Upper Skagit River to surround themselves with the rugged beauty of the North Cascades. In 1918 Seattle City Light began construction of three monumental dams over a 50 year time span to provide hydroelectric power to the city of Seattle. Join us on a tour of the lake created by the construction of Diablo Dam; We’ll begin our adventure by traveling up the North Cascade Highway deep into the heart of the National Park Complex for a two hour guided tour of Diablo Reservoir aboard the Alice Ross III. Floating across the turquoise waters taking in the views of the surrounding peaks—Ruby & Pyramid Peaks & Sourdough Mountain—travel up the gorge to the foot of Ross Dam & tour the pumphouse. We disembark for a hearty lunch at the North Cascades Institute Environmental Learning Center—an award winning campus of buildings on the shore of the lake. We’ll make a brief stop at Cascadia Farms for Ice Cream before we return to the YMCA. Please join us on the quintessential Northwest Adventure!
