I can almost smell the sweet scent of Ponderosa Pine and balsamroot flowers as I drop into the Methow...

Ta Da...
Day 12 - April 11 - Week 3


The reopening of the North Cascades is currently scheduled for 1 p.m. next Tuesday, April 16, barring unexpected weather or equipment issues.


The two crews met Thursday morning and spent the rest of the day widening about four miles from Swamp Creek to Rainy Pass shoulder to shoulder, picking up some more rocks and cutting up some more trees. There's 6-10" of snow forecast tonight (Friday) and a little more on Saturday. That coupled with the snow piled up under Liberty Bell 2 and 3 should keep the crews (along with the avalanche crew) on Monday, plenty busy clearing pavement to get ready for Tuesday's opening

Oh, man!! I didn't think it'd be this early this year with all the strange April weather, but this is awesome news!
