The North Cascades National Park is located in Northern Washington.  The park contained 318 glaciers in 1971 but then they started shrinking, but have in recent years started to grow again - which is good news.  The largest glacier currently in the park is Boston glacier, which is 7 km squared.

As well as the glaciers, the park has wildlife, including wolves, moose and wolverines.

Admission to the park is free and the North Cascades National Park is open all year round.
