SEDRO WOOLLEY, Wash. (AP) - A National Park Service report shows that nearly 770,000 people visited the North Cascades National Park Service Complex last year, spending more than $33.5 million in nearby communities.

The park complex includes North Cascades National Park as well as the Lake Chelan and Ross Lake areas. The report says the spending supported more than 400 local jobs and provided a cumulative local economy benefit of more than $40.5 million.

Superintendent Karen Taylor-Goodrich says the area draws visitors from across the country and around the world.
