Whether you already love the North Cascades or haven't made it there yet, take five minutes for seasonal ranger Masyih Ford to take you on a tour of his North Cascades.

This week, the National Park Service released the latest in a series of videos celebrating wilderness. The 5-minute video focuses on the North Cascades, and it's an excellent introduction to the wonders of one of Washington's most spectacular hiking destinations.

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.

Wow! And incredibly well done video. No fast or cinematic music to pay on emotions. Slow motion like you are there in a georgeous dream. Well done.

Thanks! We had the same reaciton.

We already loved the North Cascades, but this video was a welcome mid-week reminder. The National Park Service did a lovely job with it.

I love this such a short time it featured the sounds of nature...the stillness and quietness of being away from the city, waterfalls, and lakes, snow capped mountains, the crown jewels of this evergreen state. It'a such a blessing to live in this part of the US! Very well done!
