With the Nisqually Road now reopen, visitors to Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park will be able to check out the progress made on the demolition of the old visitor center.
This is what the old visitor center at Paradise looked like Friday afternoon, five days after the demolition began.
Crews have been using a 4,500-pound wrecking since Monday to knock the building down. Rain and snow have slowed the work, which the contractor thought might take a week.
While there are no plans for work to be done over the weekend, a ranger will be at the site to answer questions for people who are interested, said park spokeswoman Lee Taylor.
Visitors to the park should note that there is about 4 inches of snow on the ground at Paradise and parts of the road from Longmire might be ice- or snow-covered.
