North Cascades Highway To Open In 15 Minutes!

Recommended Posts

The North Cascades Highway is going to open in 15 minutes at noon PST, May 25, 2011. The last 610 feet of 10 to 30 foot snow has been cleared. It takes several weeks of snow plowing to open the road, and clear the avalanches.

 

It has been a couple of years since I was over it, and if rain wasn't in the forecast I would be headed that way now. The road is one of the most spectacular in the country. You can get a glimpse at the Washington State DOT site and on Flickr.

 

Take a Look!

 

Traffic is Pretty Light This Time of Year!

Jim,

 

This is the latest I think they have ever opened the road. I hope you are packed and ready for your trip!
