Weekly Photo Roundup: April 16 2018
This week there was an inspiring array of photos to choose from for our roundup. I believe that has something to do with spring vibes: plants are blooming, Mountain Schoolers are learning, and there are pockets of sunshine that sneak into our everyday lives. I hope you enjoy this collection of photos, taken by talented graduate students in the M.Ed Residency program with the North Cascades Institute. There are definitely gems on display here, showcasing the beauty and adventure of the Skagit Valley.
How are YOU enjoying the wonders of spring?
Graduate students in the 17th Cohort enjoyed a gorgeous Sunday cycling past the road closure on Highway 20. They rode as a group past Happy Creek, past Panther Creek, Ross Dam, and the Canyon Creek Trail. Students made it as far as mile marker 143. Overall, it was a 20 mile round trip.
It was a beautiful, rain-free and sunny day. Our bike gang consisted of nine, pedal-power believers. It was great.”

Many students took to naturalizing, noting the changes brought on by a new season. Below are a collection of photos by Ashley Hill, showcasing some of the goodies she found while out on a hike.
What a day! Hiked with some awesome, powerful ladies and observed some trillium, yew, witches butter, and a gigantic mushroom. Oh, and I received a great tarot card reading from Emily Bedker before watching The Sandlot!”

Graduate students and Institute staff wrapped up their weekend with a “Sandlot” themed soup night at Diablo housing. Soup night is a tradition among the Learning Center community, but the movie-theme was a new twist. Don’t you think they did a great job recreating this photo? #yourekillingmesmalls
And that’s all for this week – we hope you’ve been able to get out, explore and have fun, too.
