Stehekin is a small unincorporated community, settled just south of North Cascades National Park in northern Washington state. The community today boasts 75 permanent residents along with a one room, log cabin schoolhouse that was in use up until 1988. It now stands on the NPS’ National Register of Historical Places. Pictured above is the schoolhouse and a student beginning his trek home, from the National Geographic book American Mountain People (published in 1973). It is noted in the margins that students would ski up to 5 miles into the surrounding mountains to and from school each day. Yes please.
