A visit to the enchanted and spectacular Tapto Lakes area has been added to the North Cascades National Park Backpacking trip offered by AAI. This high alpine shelf most of the way up Red Face Mountain has 4 small lakes of different sizes and is snowed in most of the year. A very peaceful setting far from any trailhead or civilization, it is a great place for watching the sunset over Copper ridge or the sunrise on Challenger Glacier. Most people venturing deep into the park are visiting this special place.
